Hello Forest County Residents!
This week I am inviting you to make a discovery of your own!
Give the Gift of Family History this Season
Every family has a story to tell. Whether the story is about your family’s migration from Kentucky or your Polish great-grandmother’s travels through Ellis Island, every story is important and needs to be told. This year, give the gift of Family History by purchasing a gift certificate for one, two, or three hours of family research services at the Crandon Public Library. Your gift will include a written report of the research conducted by the library staff using our online genealogical databases and materials from our local history archives. Please note that the research your request does not need to be Forest County research. The databases we offer are world-wide databases including Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org.
Individuals may also purchase a gift certificate for one, two or three hours of scanning and preserving old family photos to a computer disc to be shared with family members. The cost of either gift certificate is based on a $15 per hour donation to the Crandon Public Library Local History department.
To order a research services gift certificate, please call the library at 715-478-3784 or stop in at the library to see Amanda or Michelle. Gift certificates may be used anytime during the year.
