Where did your ancestors come from?
Our usual meeting room
will be in use on Saturday, September 12th, as Harmon Library
celebrates its 65th anniversary. Therefore, the
Phoenix Chapter of the BFGHS will meet instead in Room C of the Burton Barr Central
Library. Chris Seggerman of the Arizona
State Archives will speak on how to use newspapers for
genealogical research . Members of the Sun Lakes
Chapter are also invited to attend.
Library is located at 1221 North Central Avenue in
Phoenix. Members are reminded to bring their
laptop computers in order to access the library's online
databases. These include Ancestry Library Edition,
Gale Genealogy Connect, HeritageQuest, and the Arizona
Republic newspaper 1999 to present.
Check out the BFGHS Events page for upcoming
meetings and conferences around the Valley!

proceeds from its dedicated county tax revenues to
purchase a subscription to Ancestry Library Edition and
HeritageQuest for local municipal library systems.
Although Ancestry is limited to in-library use
only, HeritageQuest is accessible remotely via the
Phoenix Public Library website. Look for it under
the 'Learning and Research' tab.
