Local History/Genealogy Workshops Slated
Each spring the Society sponsors a series of educational workshops for genealogists as well as for the staff and volunteers of local historical societies and museums. The general public is also welcome to attend. These workshops feature presentations and hands-on learning opportunities led by noted experts. This year eight workshops will take place in May and June. The offerings include five half-day workshops on various genealogy topics in Madison, a cemetery monuments restoration workshop in Lake Geneva (a full-day workshop that will include a lunch), and a daylong program on digitization projects in Wausau. This year the series will also feature a webinar that provides a general introduction to using the increasingly popular museum inventory software, PastPerfect 5.
Workshop Fees, Discounts and Registration Materials
Workshops range in cost from $25 to $40. In some cases seats will be limited, so we recommend you register early. Affiliated societies and members of the Wisconsin Historical Society and the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society receive discounts on registration fees.
