Report on our 3rd research 101 seminar

Last Wednesday we had 8 visitors (1 from Connecticut and the rest from Massachusetts) to learn about various aspects of keeping church records. We had a very lively group and they asked a lot of great questions. There's nothing like good interactions with the participants to make a seminar more exciting.
We will be having our second session this coming Wednesday. Unfortunately for the folks who called in late this week, but great for us: We've sold this one out, plus one. Clearly, there's still interest in this topic.

A new section of this seminar has been a records management discussion. The library staff and some board members have helped me create a guideline that's designed for Congregational churches. It's available by request in hardcopy from the library and it's on our website.
