If you are in the St. Louis area, Research Librarian, Tom Pearson, invites you to his class on "Old Salts: Researching Your Seafaring Ancestors" at the St. Louis Public Library on Saturday, 17 May, from 10:30 a.m. until noon.
Tom will discuss books, manuscripts, microfilm, and Internet sources of information on those who served in the U.S. Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine. The class will be held at the downtown library in the training room on the second floor.
Parking downtown is now metered on Saturdays but the library owns a lot at 15th and Olive, behind the Campbell House, which is a block or two away, and that lot is free to library patrons. You will need to pick up a token at one of the entrances to the library so you can exit the lot without paying.
To register or for more information, contact Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
