Public invited to go on Genealogy Treasure Hunt

VERO BEACH — There are hidden gems just waiting to be discovered in the Genealogy and Florida Archives Department of the Indian River County Main Library. And the public is invited to learn from a panel of experts where and how to find these nuggets of information.

The Tuesday, Oct. 11 meeting of the Indian River Genealogical Society will feature a panel discussion by members who are experienced researchers. They will provide useful information about the wealth of resources to be found in the library’s genealogy collection.

Panel members include:

Pete Kersey – genealogy resource book locations and computer (card) catalog

Marcia Eyberse – family histories, numbered 929.2+ and surnames found in the vertical files

Cindy Hineman – Pathfinders, printed roadmaps to numerous research topics

Following the panel’s presentation and questions from the audience, the Treasure Hunt will begin, using resources available in the library. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded at the November meeting.

The meeting will convene at 9:30 am in the large first floor conference room of the IRC Main Library, 1600 21st Street, Vero Beach. The Treasure Hunt will follow a brief business session and refreshments.

This and all general meetings of the society are free and open to the public. The IRGS meets each second Tuesday, September through May, and welcomes all those interested in researching their family’s history.
