Description:
Library! at Hillcrest Hosts Family History Day
All-day event offers classes, crafts, hands-on activities, and prizes

October is National Family History Month, and the Library! at Hillcrest is offering a full day of activities aimed at helping families understand - and preserve - their past. The Oct. 20 event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Library is partnering with local firm Roots Family History to offer classes on photo and video editing, meta-tagging, and an entry-level "Ancestry 101" program. The Library hopes participants will come away with a better understanding of how to preserve their timeless old photographs and videos. Additional activities, crafts, and prizes are also planned.

The event is free but, due to a limited number of laptops available, participants may want to register in advance. For more information, call (208) 972-8340, or visit boisepubliclibrary.org/calendar.
