Networking - Who's Researching Whom?

A coordinated listing of attendees’ family names being searched will be printed in the syllabus. To participate, send an email to: (before April 1) with your information in the following order:
           surname being researched [tab] earliest year [tab] location

  • Per surname — alphabetical ordering by surname will be appreciated by attendees reviewing the list
  • At the end of the list, type your name and email address to be associated with the surname listing.
  • If multiple attendees from one email address each have a different set of surnames, a separate email for each attendee will be appreciated.
  • Proper formating will reduce volunteer time and avoid mistakes; don’t worry about visual alignment in the email - do not add extra spaces or multiple tabs.


  • All meals (except Monday, May 5 banquet, if registered/paid for) are on your own­—at your expense.
  • Due to limited menu options, the Monday banquet will be a formal buffet—fine dining meeting all needs.
  • NOTE: The FHC has a Lunch Room available on the lower level. You are welcome to BYO lunch to eat there or purchase from vending machines. No eating is permitted in the Library.
