Museum News

We recently joined a group of LaSalle County museums, historical organizations and genealogy societies. It has been a great resource for ideas, pointers and networking. We meet every quarter at a different museum. 


 The September program of the LaSalle County Genealogy Guild will be on Saturday, September 17, 1 pm at the Guild Headquarters.  The speaker will be Jenny Warner. Learn how to effectively research your ancestors using various online re-sources, books and records. There are multiple roadblocks to researching Pennsylvania ancestors. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be served, however research will not be allowed during the program.
