Cindy Rush, Director of the Asheville Family History Center in Arden, returns to the Library for a more in-depth session on using the FamilySearch website. Rush will focus on microfilm records from the FamilySearch headquarters in Salt Lake City and how to identify those that have been digitized. Many of these are now available online, however access varies by licensing restrictions for each resource. Some items can be accessed from any personal computer. Additional items are available at affiliate libraries like the Transylvania County Library and even more are available at Family History Centers such as the one located on Sweeten Creek Road in Arden. Finally, there are some records that are only available in Salt Lake City. In addition there are some online resources that are available but that have not been indexed. Rush will provide tips and tricks for navigating through this wealth of information. Please contact the Local History Room to sign up for this free program by calling 828-884-1820. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Transylvania County Library.
