Genealogy Lock-In

family_treeDate: Friday, June 20th
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Location: Third Floor

A “Study Hall” for family researchers; a self-directed evening to research, organize, write or ponder your genealogy in the peace and quiet of the Library.

Beginners are welcome! Anyone can benefit from the Ancestry (Library Edition) database and the power of the internet to reveal the facts and dates proving your ancestral past. The Library’s Wi-Fi is available for anyone bringing their own computer. Bring your own flash drive for downloads; a $5 print card will be provided. A resource packet will be given to each researcher. Staff will be on hand to offer brief research support and suggestions.

The Library doors will be open from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. to pre-registered Lock-In researchers only. Promptly at 7:00 p.m., the doors will close and the researchers will be in effect locked in until 10:00 p.m.

There is a $10 fee, payable in exact cash on the night of the Lock-In. You must be at least 18 years old to participate. Registration begins Monday, June 2, either by phone (248) 796-4224 or in person at the Guest Services desk; please specify whether you plan to use a Library computer or will bring your own. Reservations are limited, so reserve your spot early.

This is an excellent chance to catch up on your family research or to begin it for the first time.

Library doors are opened and pre-registered researchers (only) are admitted from 6:30-7 pm; Library doors are re-locked 7-10 pm; exact cash ($10) is required at the door. You must be at least 18 years of age to attend.
