Did you know that the Standard History of Adams and Wells Counties, Indiana: Volume 2 has been digitized and is available online through Google Books? Did you know that Google Newspaper has the Bluffton Chronicle online?

The March 5th genealogy workshop is titled Google for Genealogists. Meredythe and I will discuss Google Books and Google Newspapers which is where you can read the Standard History of Adams and Wells Counties, Indiana: Volume 2 and the Bluffton Chronicle. We will also discuss Google Translate and give you some guidelines to help you when doing a general or advanced search. 

The workshop will be held in the Board Room and we will meet at the usual time; 6:00-7:00pm. So mark you calendars for Thursday, March 5th: Google for Genealogists, 6:00-7:00pm, WCPL Board Room.

Hi, my name is Vi Tester. I moved to Bluffton in 1994 when I was hired as the Reference/Adult Services librarian for the Wells County Public Library.
