Treasures From the Archives: A Pathway to Family and Local History

Wednesday, August 13
6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
The Jean Evans Archives Room

Curious about what historical treasures reside in your local archives? Ever wondered what lies behind the "staff only" sign? Have you finally decided that it is time to track down that elusive relative in your family tree?

Come to the Champaign County Historical Archives to have these and many other questions answered. Staff can assist you with your beginning genealogical research, give you a tour, and show you the wonders within the stacks. Free genealogy starter kits provided by the Champaign County Genealogy Society will be available for beginning researchers.

Treasures from the Archives is a 140th birthday event, celebrating the rich history and bright future of The Urbana Free Library.
