Expanded Local History and Genealogy Research Assistance Available!
A lot of us are spending time at home researching our distant relatives or thinking about the history of our neighborhoods or houses. In order to help patrons who may not be able to visit the Library, the Local History and Genealogy Department at the Covington branch is offering more options for patrons to connect with staff to get help with their research needs.
Starting Monday, July 6, 2020 patrons can schedule a one-hour appointment via a phone call or online through a virtual meeting. Appointments are available Monday – Friday between 10 AM and 4 PM. Invitations for virtual meetings will be sent via email. Patrons can still request an in-person one-hour appointment as well.
To schedule an appointment, please call the Local History and Genealogy Department at (859) 962-4070.
To get the most out of your appointment, be sure to have a specific research question in mind, and bring or prepare any materials you may have pertaining to the question, so that we can best utilize the appointment time.
Common appointment topics include: introduction to genealogy, research on a specific ancestor, assistance with online genealogy databases, or the basics of property research.
