Stateline Genealogy Club, LLC
June 7, 2019
by Vicki Ruthe Hahn
I retired as a Reference Librarian in March, and wanted to continue my work helping people with genealogy and stateline Wisconsin/Illinois local history. It is important to me that I am able to continue the Stateline Genealogy Club, meeting at the Beloit Public Library that I founded in 2012.
Below is information about the new genealogy business I formed. It is from my new Stateline Genealogy Club, LLC brochure that I just created. ( The actual brochure is not fuzzy like the first snipped/pasted/enlarged version on the BLOG. I added the brochure in a second clearer, but smaller font as well.) I can email the brochure to you.
Beloit Public Library has contracted with me to continue organizing, leading, and presenting the monthly (newly named) “Beloit Public Library Genealogy Classes” there.
I will see you at the Library for the June 14 program –
“Crossing the Border, French Canadian Ancestors”, by speaker George Findlen. The steps, resources & aids that one needs to successfully identify the parents of an immigrant who settled in the U.S. from Quebec,
and every second Friday of the month! The patent/brand “Stateline Genealogy Club” and logo now belong to me.
I continue to do presentations at various stateline Libraries, and Historical/Genealogical Societies, etc. – (see tab above “Presentations by Vicki” for the calendar). I will let you know of other libraries in the area that contract with me for more regular programs.
My work searching an individual’s family genealogy will be limited, as I will concentrate on consultation with teaching/helping people who are researching their own history, doing local presentations, contracting with Libraries, and writing this BLOG. (As you know, it takes a lot of time to “do” genealogy.)
Most questions about specific Beloit, Wisconsin family/local history questions should be answered by phoning the Beloit Public Library directly at (608) 364-2905. I have done some basic genealogy training with the staff, and will be doing more training.
Only contact me if more detailed or extensive research is needed. I will be at the Beloit Public Library after the monthly programs for 1 hour, if someone wants to briefly get help from me in person without paying me a fee.
It is not as easy now that I am not working at the Library 40 hours a week as the “Resident Librarian Genealogist”. My Stateline Genealogy Club, LLC company will be part-time as I want time to do the many hobbies I enjoy, including researching my own family history!
