Family Lines

Have you ever wondered who’s in your family line but don’t know where or how to start?

Here are some of our resources that can help point you in the right direction:

Keep On Learning - Family Lines

Universal Class offers numerous courses in the subject of family, one of which is entitled “Genealogy 101”.

Gale Courses also offers a great number of courses on family, including “Genealogy Basics”.

These courses can be accessed online from anywhere you have time to do so.  First step is to sign up.

To top it off, our Library offers in-house access to to interested patrons.  Just use any of our computer workstations and you’re good to search away in their databases, features, and billions of records.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see who was part of the family, maybe even all the way to the medieval times?  Or it could be a nice project to set a trail for the generations down the line.

With the holidays coming, this sounds like small talk that could bloom into great conversations and deeper connections with family.

May you have great fun with your discoveries!

Keep On Learning

Here at the Livingston Public Library, we provide a ton of resources that can be used in the pursuit of Lifelong Learning — waiting to be browsed, seeked and availed of.

We are looking for learners.

And learners-to-be.

Young or older.  From sunrise to sunset, as in times of day or times of life.

We like encouraging you all to go for any subject that catches your fancy.

Does it really matter what stage of life we are in, what skills we have, or what knowledge we have to begin with — when it comes to learning something new?

It doesn’t.  It shouldn’t.

Let Your Mind Grow Bit by Bit
Let Your Mind Grow Bit by Bit

Because Lifelong Learning can be done bit by bit, from a huge spectrum of interests, at all times of the day, at all stages in life.  In full intensity, or in light taps.  In whatever form or effort works for us.

We just need to want it and be motivated enough.  AND take that first step!

Then the rest will come — time that can be scraped up, efforts that can be mustered, resources that can be used, little pieces of knowledge that will come together in the end — with all the fun, connections and reconnections that can be discovered and re-discovered along the way.

Wouldn’t you agree?
