The class is free, but class size is limited, so registration is required. To register, please contact the Reference desk at 918-338-4169.
If you are looking for assistance in tracking your family information, experienced genealogists will be available on Saturday, March 18 from 9 to 4 in the Local and Family History Room of the Bartlesville Public Library. Volunteer genealogists will be there to guide you, whether you are beginning family research or need suggestions to further your research. It is helpful to bring the family information you already have, along with the questions or family information you need answered.
The purpose of the Bartlesville Genealogical Society is to promote and encourage the common interest of family genealogy. All genealogy assistance is a free service provided by the Society.
The Bartlesville Genealogical Society will hold its regular monthly meeting at 6:30 on Monday evening, March 13, in the Bartlesville Public Library’s upstairs meeting room (Conference Room A). The public is invited.
During the 6:30 Beginner’s Corner portion of the meeting, those present will learn the basics of beginning genealogy. Rita Bibles, an experienced genealogist, will tell how to locate and search census records. She will share how, once the census records are located, to milk those records to acquire the most information.
At the second portion of the meeting, about 7:15, Meg Greenwood, also an experienced genealogist, will discuss methods for researching your Irish and European ancestors.
The goal of the Bartlesville Genealogical Society is to promote and encourage the common interest of family genealogy and history among the members. Meetings and classes are a service of the Society and are free and open to anyone interested in beginning or continuing family research. Information discussed will assist beginners in their search for family information, and, if you are an experienced genealogist, you will find useful tips in continuing family research.

Our ipad bar in the teen area is finally finished! We have had ipads in the young children’s area for a long time now, and it’s been long overdue to add some to the teen area. Many kudos to Shellie, Mike, and Terry for their hard work. There are already a lot of apps and games installed on them but suggestions for more are always welcome! We definitely want to know what you’d like us to add for your enjoyment.
