Many of our educational workshops and lectures take place during the workday. If evenings are more convenient for you, take a look at the Boston Public Library's upcoming Local & Family History Lecture Series.

Upcoming topics for the autumn include the life of John Quincy Adams, genealogy resources in police and military records, the history of poorhouses in Massachusetts, and the anniversary of the Cocoanut Grove nightclub fire. All sessions will be led by experts on their topics and hosted by the friendly BPL staff.
