Last chance for Irish Saturday in S St Paul

The Minnesota Genealogical Society (MGS) is moving its library and research center from South St Paul to Mendota Heights. Saturday, October 14, will be the last chance for Irish Saturday at the current location.

The following move details were provided by MGS:

Yes, MGS is moving!

MGS will be moving starting October 16th to the new space at 1385 Mendota Heights Road, Suite 100, Mendota Heights, MN 55120. The first part of the move is to install the shelving in the library, then move all the books – some 30,000 of them – and then the offices, tables and chairs for the conference rooms and other furniture for the reception area.

There will be a new phone number, which has not been assigned to us yet.

The William J. Hoffman Library and Research Center will close after business hours on Saturday, October 14 and reopen after Thanksgiving.  There are a lot of boxes which have to be packed and then unpacked.  A professional moving company will be moving the books and furniture, but many file cabinets have to be emptied and packed into boxes.  If you would be able/willing to help with packing or unpacking, please email and we will get details to you.

Although the WJH Library and Research Center will be closed, there will still be many meetings going on in the Conference Rooms, so please check the Event Calendar on the MGS website for where and when those will be held.

The October 14 Irish Saturday class will be held as usual:

“IRISH PLACES AND JURISDICTIONS” — Saturday, October 14, 10:30 am to 12 noon

Description: Place is an essential element of genealogical research especially in Ireland. Learn about Provinces, Counties, Civil and Church Parishes, Baronies, Poor Law Unions and Townlands.
