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.

Videos - Visit the GFO's YouTube Channel for a tour of our library and some interesting videos from some of our special interest groups.

Our online learning now uses Zoom's Closed Captioning. Follow this link to a document that will show you how to turn on subtitles in Zoom
