Miami: Public library resources, March 1

The main branch of the Miami Public Library is home to a genealogy collection with materials including all US census microfilms, city directories, newspapers and more.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami has planned a field trip to the library to meet with the genealogy librarian, beginning at 12.45pm, Sunday, March 1. The Main Library is located at 101 W. Flagler Street.

The librarian will be available to meet with attendees following an introduction to the collections. The genealogy department's six computers are reserved for the JGS; attendees may bring their own laptops, flash drives and wireless cards.

The genealogy department features three microfilm readers that can print and save, with another two only for reading, while other library areas have additional readers and computers.

The library offers Internet access to Ancestry.com, Heritage Quest and other sites.
