CLA Genealogical Resources talk at BPL

Did you miss last week's History Matters talk about researching at the Congregational Library & Archives? Are you interested in hearing about a more specific part of our collection? Then you're in luck. Our digital archivist, Sari Mauro, will be presenting at the Boston Public Library next Wednesday as part of their Local & Family History series.

Genealogical Resources at the Congregational Library and Archives

The Congregational Library & Archives offers a treasure trove of unique materials for family historians. From seventeenth-century church records to the personal papers of ministers and missionaries, these materials provide names and dates of past generations as well as insight into a religious tradition that deeply informed American culture. Sari Mauro explores the collections that are of special interest to genealogists, both those accessible online and onsite. Mauro is the Digital Archivist at the Congregational Library & Archives, where she is the primary archivist assigned to New England's Hidden Histories, the library's largest digitization program making colonial-era church records available online for free to all users.
