Intro to Local History and Genealogical Resources with Local History Librarian Michael Achille

Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Have you ever wanted to learn more about Hingham history but aren’t sure where to begin? Are you pursuing genealogical research that connects to Hingham or the surrounding area? Are you curious about what resources are available in town that would assist you with academic, personal, or professional research? Join Local History Librarian Michael Achille on zoom to learn more about what materials are available, where and how to access them, and how digital resources provide opportunities for at home learning and research. This program will also be an opportunity to get a first look at newly digitized materials from the HPL's historic collection.
