Mary Penner
Professional Genealogist

Will present a workshop on

Online Public Library Resources for Genealogists

Local public libraries hold many valuable resources for family history researchers, but we can’t visit every library near where our far-flung ancestors lived. Fortunately, many public libraries have online resources useful for genealogists. Find out how to conduct research in libraries far and wide from your home computer.

Tijeras resident and NMGS member Mary Penner began documenting her family history at the age of ten and still continues to pursue her passion for genealogy. A former college and high school English teacher, she now works as a professional genealogist, writer, and speaker. An award winning author, her articles have appeared in numerous genealogy journals and magazines, and she contributes frequently to the “Ancestry Weekly Discovery,” a digital newsletter for Ancestry.com. Her recent webinar on Ancestry.com has been viewed by over 3,000 people. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Association of Professional Genealogists and has been awarded research grants from both the Kansas and Missouri State Historical Societies.

This program is free and open to the public.
