On the 1st Saturday of the month (Sept. through Dec.), BGS is hosting a FREE, in-person Genealogy Open Lab in Bend. This is dedicated, uninterrupted genealogy research time for you and others who come. Brad Lemmon and Sue Dolezal are the Open Lab hosts, and if you have questions about a research problem, they will be nearby to offer advice.
The public is invited to the Open Lab, too. If you know someone who is interested in starting their family tree, invite them to the Lab. Brad or Sue can help them start their family history journey and find their first ancestor.
There is not a program presentation on 1st Saturday. Bring your laptop or other device, and come once, or come every 1st Saturday through December (Sep 3, Oct 1, Nov 5, Dec 3). The BGS Library will be open for research, too, during the Open Lab time.
Location: Williamson Hall, 2200 NE Hwy 20, Bend, 97701. Click here for a map to see the Hall's location. Please click Register to RSVP, so Brad and Sue know to expect you.
