The Genealogy Friends of the Plano Libraries hosts Gayla Bush, manager of the Genealogy, History, and Social Sciences Department of the Dallas Public Library.  She will be discussing what can be found in the Dallas Library Genealogy Collection.  This is a FREE session that is open to all.
Saturday, August 2, 10:30 a.m.  at the Roy and Helen Hall Memorial Library's Genealogy Area: The North Collin County Genealogical Society will have members available to assist you with your Genealogy.  Whether you are new to Genealogy and don't know where to turn to find information on your ancestors or you've been researching your family for years and have hit a block, the Society members are here to help you.  They are donating their time for free, so take advantage of this opportunity.  You do not have to be a member of the Society or have ancestors in Collin County or Texas.

I will be out of the office July 7th through September 7th.  Due to this, this blog won't be updated until mid September.  I hope you all have a great summer. - Susan
