SELCO’s latest Special Legacy Program took place in October 2019. Genealogist and author Rick Crume traveled around the SELCO region to offer four different programs on search techniques and best practices for anyone interested in learning more about their family’s history.

Rick’s programs this fall included:

How to Find Your Family History in Online Newspapers 

Library Handouts – FamilySearch, Ancestry, Tree-Keeping, Online Newspapers

Library Materials – Survey, Press Release, Social Media, Checklist

This project is made possible with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF) and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities and in cooperation with an outreach grant from the State Arts Board of Minnesota.
