Ms. Briggs is the Archivist & Special Collections Librarian at McDaniel College. She received her Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh and is a proud alumna of McDaniel College. Andrea is thrilled to be able to give back to the community that taught her to love history by preserving it and making it accessible to researchers.

She will be presenting Caring for Family Papers and Personal Archives. This program will cover basic archival preservation techniques and strategies to best care for materials at home, such as scrapbooks, photographs, newspapers, bibles, etc.

Meetings of the Carroll County Genealogical Society (CCGS) are usually held the third Monday of each month, March through May and September through November, at 7:00 p.m. in the Dixon Room, Westminster Library at 50 East Main Street, Westminster.

*Refreshments are available at 7:00 p.m. and the meetings are free and open to the public.

Please come to our meeting and bring a friend. You will meet other folks interested in family research and enjoy delightful talks that may help you in your research. I look forward to seeing new faces!

You can also come early and take advantage of our large collection of books and other materials housed at the Westminster Branch of the CCPL. On Thursday afternoons, between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., one or more society volunteers will be on hand to assist researchers. Of course, this collection is available to all anytime the library is open.
