COLUMN: Library Focus - Check out our Irish celebration this St. Patrick’s Day

— The second class of Genealogy 101 meets from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 20. We will explore vital records and family resources to document your family tree started in class one. What are vital records and where do you find them? What records are in your own homes and your relatives? How do you convince them to share them with you? Genealogist Louise Creighton will take beginners through all you need to know to trace your family tree over the course of five months. This class meets on the third Wednesday of each month. You do not need to attend all of the sessions, but they do build on knowledge learned in previous sessions. The class is free, but registration is required.

Irish Mic?

We never know what our performers will play but March sessions usually involve more than a wee bit of Irish tunes. Drop in at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, and discover what you have been missing as our friends from Harrison Lighting and Stage and Merry Mischief host a diverse slate of performers from all over Central New York. Performer sign up begins at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.
