Auld Lang Syne . . .

2011 has been a good year around here.

We’ve received many new resources from family histories to land records, Shakers to Palatines.  We’ve even added a few new databases to our arsenal.

We’ve had great programs, like our Specifically for Seniors genealogy class, Genealogy Nights, and visiting speakers like Lori Cox-Paul from the National Archives.

We became Iowa’s first patent and trademark resource center, on behalf of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

We wrote a year’s worth of interesting, heartbreaking, and extremely silly posts.

And we’ve helped over thirteen hundred people with their historical and genealogical needs.

But we have a feeling 2012 could be even better!

More images will be added to the Upper Mississippi Valley Digital Image Archive, and we’ll be offering even more interesting programs and posts.

And the 1940 Census will be arriving in April!

You have the next eleven months to work on your family tree before next Thanksgiving—it’s never too early to start.

Won’t you join us?
