Starting your family genealogy can seem a little daunting. There is so much information to be found in a variety of locations. Let NEHGS help you make sense of it all by attending this FREE lecture for members and non-members. This orientation and tour introduces you to the NEHGS research facility, located at 99-101 Newbury Street in Boston.
Founded in 1845, NEHGS is the country’s oldest and largest non-profit genealogy library and archive. With more than 15 million artifacts, books, manuscripts, microfilms, journals, photographs, records, and expert staff to help you navigate it all, NEHGS provides the access you need to research your family history.
You will also have an opportunity to describe your research interests to one of our expert genealogists on staff, who can offer advice on how to proceed. The program starts with a thirty-minute introductory lecture and will be followed by a tour of the library and its vast holdings.
