Treasure Trove Thursday and follow Friday

This week has been so hectic for me that I have resorted to blogging in bulk!!  At least I'm blogging though.  This worked out well for Thursday and Friday because I am going to write about the same topic for both.  I am teaching a new class this morning on Basic Military Records and I just was thinking about how lucky I am to have such a "treasure trove" of information at my finger tips.  I am referring to the Midwest Genealogy Center.  Yes I work here, but I started working here because I was here so much that I applied and got a page position.  I worked my way up from there and I absolutely love it.  I NEVER would have thought I would be teaching classes on anything, working so closely with people doing detective work and just overall enjoying my job!  I have learned so much about people and history by researching and it is so wonderful!  If you are researching your genealogy and have never been to MGC, I highly recommend taking a trip.  It is the largest free standing public genealogy library in the nation!

  1. I probably won't get to the library because it's several states away but I like their website and I especially like the census transcription forms. Thanks for the heads up!
