2005 FamilySSCD Sponsored Programs

Thursday, 11:15 am – 12:15 pm (AD)
How to Build a Foreign Language Collection
Milos Markovic, Cleveland Public Library

Have the demographics of your community changed? World political events or the arrival of a foreign company can bring new users to your doorstep. This presentation will show you how to assess your local needs and, if you decide you need to add foreign language materials, some common pitfalls to avoid and actions to take to build an effective collection. Resources will also be reviewed.

Friday, 9:45 am – 10:45 am (AD)
The One Minute Genealogist
David Soltesz, Cuyahoga County Public Library

Is instant gratification possible for the genealogist? Why can’t everyone’s family records be found conveniently all in one place? The latest generation of genealogy databases seems tantalizingly close to making the search for your roots into a “one stop shopping” experience. You will take a look at HeritageQuest, Ancestry Library Edition, and some other contenders to see just what they can do and where they fall
short. Now that OPLIN has made possible the acquisition of HeritageQuest for many Ohio libraries, generalist librarians may be seeing a demand for assistance in genealogy research. For librarians new to genealogy, HeritageQuest, and other online resources, this program introduces basic research procedures to help raise the comfort levels of novice genealogists.
