Research consultant Karen Kasper will discuss the Archives’ microfilm collection and church records that include baptisms, marriages, funerals and early membership. Kasper and Annika Peterson, reference and reading room coordinator, will unveil and review the Archives’ new genealogical resources website designed to help beginners embark on research.
