Genealogy is the story of people and locations. As we explore the lives of our ancestors, we reveal the story of place and, more specifically, the buildings they called home.

Join the Western New York Genealogical Society as librarians Rhonda Konig of the BECPL Grosvenor Room and Cynthia Van Ness of The Buffalo History Museum as they explain methods for piecing together a house’s history. They will discuss useful resources both online (a little) and offline (a lot).

During the second half of the presentation, Ms. Konig and Ms. Van Ness will highlight genealogical resources available to researchers at both institutions.

As a special bonus for attendees, The Buffalo History Museum will be offering optional docent-led tours of the museum immediately following the presentation.

Seating for this special event is limited, and advanced registration is required. To RSVP, contact Megan MacNeill, TBHM Program & Engagement Coordinator, at or 716-873-9644 ext. 320. All registrations must be received by November 11th.
