Many of us are getting excited about the release of the 1950 U.S. Federal Census data being released on April 1, 2022.  We've provided a guide to help you prepare for the 1950 Census so when the data is available you'll know who your people are and where to locate them.

The GFO offers many types of learning opportunities.
The GFO Calendar is your best source for all upcoming educational events.

GenTalks - GenTalks are offered on the third Saturday of most months and are free to everyone. Check the GFO calendar for the next GenTalk.

Spring & Fall Seminars - These full-day events feature nationally-known speakers, and require registration with an admission cost.

Half-Day Seminars - These half-day events require registration with an admission cost.

Classes - Classes, taught by various presenters, are offered primarily during our annual Open House in the spring, but also intermittently throughout the year. Classes are usually free to members, with a nominal fee for non-members.

Special Interest Groups -The GFO encourages special interest groups on any topic related to genealogy, by hosting SIG meetings at no charge. We encourage Forum members to form and participate in such groups. See our current list of groups meeting at the library.
