We went to the Dallas Public Library, 8th floor, Genealogy section this weekend. What a treat! The research librarian was so helpful and directed me to the stacks and the card catalog.

Although I have worked in libraries before, it has been some time since I held a drawer of index cards in my hand. It was like meeting an old friend again 🙂

I spent most of my time in the Pennsylvania reference section and before I knew it, had found lots of information about someone who might be my fourth great grandfather.

Can’t wait to scan and add these records to my tree and print out the family group sheet. We had a great time and are looking forward to going back to do more research!

I’d like to know: which libraries do you rely on for genealogy research?
