From the Library – NEXT WEDNESDAY (5/25/22): IPL Genealogy Group – Should You Take the Hint? Automated Record Hinting on the Giant Genealogy Websites

Sunny Jane Morton is an internationally-known genealogy speaker and award-winning writer and editor. She’ll speak at the next meeting of the IPL Genealogy Group with a presentation on Wednesday, May 25, at 7:00 PM.

In Should You Take the Hint? Automated Record Hinting on the Giant Genealogy Websites, attendees will learn how automated record hints on Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org, FindMyPast.com and MyHeritage.com can help them discover records that may be out there about their family.

Discover how hints may differ from search results and how to use both tools most effectively. Learn valuable tips on evaluating records and incorporating details into your tree. Should You Take the Hint? Automated Record Hinting on the Giant Genealogy Websites is a beginner-oriented lecture with great reminders for more experienced researchers, too.

Participants have the choice of viewing this program in person at the library or at home via Zoom. Registration with an email address is required through our Event Calendar, and those who choose the online option will receive an email with the login information for Zoom.

From the Library – Welcome to Our New Website

Everyone at the Irondequoit Library is happy to introduce you to our brand new website! Our old design served the community well for a long time, but we thought it was time for a change.

Our new website includes all the same great information you’ve come to rely on about library services, upcoming programs, and the newest additions to our shelves. But now it also features a more modern look and a mobile-friendly design when you’re browsing from your phone or tablet.

So please have a look around and catch up with all your favorite library services including Ask A Librarian, the Maker’s Lab, reserving a Meeting Room, and more!

But we’ve also got a few new things to show you as well, including access to a New Release Newsletter and an Accessibility Menu that gives users the option to change the text size, highlight any links, rebuild the page in a dyslexia-friendly way, and more.

Our thanks to the team at Mason Digital for creating our new website design. We hope you like it as much as we do.
