The Peoria County Genealogical Society hold a tour of the Local History and Genealogy Collection at the Peoria Public Library’s main library on Thursday, May 18, from 4-5 p.m. in lower level 1, 107 NE Monroe in Peoria.

One of the collection’s librarians will lead the group through the stacks, into the microfilm, and point out key sources available to people researching their family history.

Learn about materials available for genealogy, such as city newspapers, area directories, genealogical records, items on Peoria history, and online resources accessible only at the library.

There will be prizes and giveaways during the event. For more information, contact PCGS Membership Director, Kathy, at
