Genealogy Club meets April 28
The next meeting of the Amesbury Library Genealogy Club will meet on Monday, April 28, at 5:30 p.m. Kelly Turner from the Massachusetts State Library will be presenting on preserving family history. She will focus on how people can assess, organize and take care of their personal/familial collections without getting too stressed out, spending too much money or wasting any valuable time. She will share what materials they can get without having to special order them and how to use them properly so that their scrapbooks, photos, newspaper clippings and other material will be well taken care of, and hopefully, passed down through generations. For more information, contact Margie at 978-388-8148 or firstname.lastname@example.org
