FREE Genealogy Courses at SLPL: March & April

Tom Pearson teaches a wide variety of free genealogy classes at the St. Louis Public Library, at the Buder Branch Library, located at 401 Hampton Avenue, St. Louis, Mo 63109.  With free parking it is hard to pass up this opportunity!

Tom also shared that he is available to do a free class for your metro area group at your location. He covers 50+ topics in genealogy and military history, so he can certainly cover something of interest to your group!  If you prefer, he can also provide a free program for your group at Central Library or Buder Branch Library.  Contact Tom at tpearson@slpl.org for details.

In case of inclement weather, call 314-241-2288 to see if Library locations will be open that day.
