The Glenview Public Library has a genealogy Web page with information to get you started in researching your family history. Explore at http://www.glenviewpl.org/genearesources.htm.
Every month, a hands-on training workshop is offered, giving instruction in using the Library's online genealogy resources. The Library also brings in well-known genealogists or local historians from time-to-time to talk about interesting topics in genealogy.
To receive occasional e-mails notifying you about classes and presentations here at the Library, along with other important genealogical announcements, send an e-mail to Deena at email@example.com with the subject line "subscribe genealogy."
We look forward to helping you grow your family tree!
The Reference Services Department blog Connections launches officially today. Connections embodies the concept of relationship -- in this instance, a relationship between the Library and its Community and information. The Reference Services staff will be updating Connections frequently, so, please, come back often! Welcome to Connections!

According to The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America (in Reference at R641.3 OXF) cranberries were cultivated by Native Americans long before white settlers arrived, which makes cranberries particularly appropriate for Thanksgiving fare.
For more information on cranberries, including history and recipes, click here. Also, here are a few cookbooks you can check out from our non-fiction collection, each with several mouthwatering cranberry recipes: Seriously Simple Holidays, 641.568 WOR; The Thanksgiving Cookbook, 641.568 GAR; and The Nantucket Holiday Table, 641.568 SIM.
Enjoy the season.
