Joe Hardesty, Kentucky History and Genealogy Librarian for the Louisville Free Public Library, contacted KATH President Pattie Dillon about a free Genealogy Day at the library on Saturday, April 26th, and he requested that we send the information along to KATH members.
Joe writes: “One of my career aspirations is to assist family historians as well as state and local history researchers to use our library collection to its fullest. One way that I succeed in doing this is to organize and host a full day conference called Genealogy Day @The Library. We are pleased to say that this year Wayne Onkst, the Library Commissioner for Kentucky and the director of the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives will be the keynote speaker – and it’s all FREE!! … Nothing beats a dedicated librarian and great teachers working together to inspire the next generation of historians!!”
