Hayner Public Library (Information taken directly from Hayner Public Library Newsletter)
The Hayner Genealogy & Local History Library in Alton, Illinois, is embarking on a new adventure. Collectively, our staff has over
fifty years of experience doing genealogy research. In order to assist the most people in finding their family roots, we have put together
a set of classes to teach just how to get the most out of your research time. There are twelve classes in all, and you can sign up for one of all of them.
The classes will be taught on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm with the same class being offered on the following Saturday
morning at 10:30. Each session will last for approximately one hour, depending on how many questions are asked. Questions will be answered
as times permits.
These classes are free of charge but do require reservations. To register, call 1-800-613-3163. Please be sure to identify the classes for which you
wish to enroll. Call early, the classes fill up quick.
