Social Hour at 1 p.m.

This is an informal social hour with others who are interested in genealogy. The goal is to share experiences with fellow genealogists and hopefully gain new insights. Think of the most important question or issue that you have about your genealogy. It may be a brick wall that you are facing with one of your ancestors, a question of wanting to know where to find a particular resource, or a success that you are dying to share with the rest of us.

Book Exchange

Bring in genealogy books and periodicals that you are no longer using and make them available to people who can make use of them.


Darien Library is proud to co-sponsor this event with the Middlesex Genealogical Society.
