FVGS Genealogy Research Help at the Oswego Public Library

FVGS volunteers are available at the 32 W. Jefferson Street library location in Oswego on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 9:00-12:00 am and 1:00 to 3:00 pm. They are also there on the 2nd Friday evening each month between 6:30 and 8:30 pm.

Take advantage of the knowledge of these experienced volunteers to give your research a jump-start. Just go to the Adult Services area and ask the librarian at the desk to direct you to a genealogy volunteer.

Whether you want to learn about the library’s genealogical collection or need help in finding more information about an ancestor, help (and understanding and sympathy, too) is at hand. The library has ample computers for searching Ancestry.com and other genealogical sites for clues. The volunteers will walk you through the process and do all they can to get you up and running. Be sure to bring along any pedigree charts and family group sheets you have about the specific problem you are trying to solve. We hope to see you there!

The current volunteers are Mike Fichtel, Rhea Hunter, Oriene Springstroh, and Peggy Tegel. More volunteers are always needed. Email the society at ilfvgs@gmail.com if you have questions or would like to volunteer.
