Farmhouse and family of resettlement client. Waldo County, Maine.

Genealogy is one of the nation's most popular hobbies, with thousands upon thousands of researchers digging into archives, databases, and attics, hoping to piece together their family's story. The New York Public Library is one of the top destinations for genealogists in New York and this June we're happy to host our first ever Family History Day.

Please join us this Saturday, June 18th in an exploration of genealogical research through a selection of lectures and instructional sessions from professional genealogists, librarians, and leading figures in the field of family history. We are also pleased to offer a limited number of quick research consultations sessions with seasoned genealogists. And for the young historian in the family, there will be an craft room for children to make and design their own genealogical creations.

Family History Day is free event consisting of multiple events scheduled concurrently. Registered guests can attend all the events, or just a few. Unregistered guests can attend, but cannot be guaranteed a seat. Smaller sessions and consultations are first come, first served.

Register at Eventbrite. Note:  advanced registration is SOLD OUT.

This event is co-hosted by the Irma and Paul Milstein Division of U.S. History, Local History and Genealogy at the NYPL and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society.

Family History Day is funded through The New York Public Library's Innovation Project, which is made possible by a generous grant from the Charles H. Revson Foundation
