Linda Myers, field archivist with Missouri’s Local Records Program, will be at the Ozark County Historium on the Gainesville square at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, to present a program guiding attendees in how best to use county records in genealogy research. The program, which is free and open to all who enjoy researching their family roots, will feature a Power Point presentation, handouts and Myers’ advice aimed at everyone from beginners to experienced researchers.
The recent addition of two microfilm readers to the Historium, one with a printer, should make researching one’s ancestors easier, said Historium president Janet Taber. Several Ozark County records have been microfilmed as an archival way of preserving them, but no microfilm readers were available to view them until now.
The family of the late Flo Williamson recently donated her microfilm reader and many genealogy books to the Historium after her death. The second reader/printer was purchased using donated funds.
