NOTICE

Attention Family History Room Patrons - Melbourne Public Library

 

We have temporarily suspended our regular volunteer staffing schedule and are opening to provide research assistance in the Family History Room at the Melbourne Public Library by appointment only.

* A volunteer will be happy to assist during normal library hours by appointment made at least one day in advance to allow scheduling someone to meet with you.  
* To make an appointment during regular library hours, email Dave Bishop at davidlbishop16@gmail.com

 


COVID-19 UPDATE
MELBOURNE PUBLIC LIBRARY CLOSURE
(last updated: 10 Dec 2020)
Now that extensive library sanitation efforts have been completed, the Melbourne Public Library has remained opened and is now fully operational with several safety precautions in place. These include attendee limitations for meeting rooms and avoiding larger gatherings for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021. They will later assess how long the limitations will continue into 2021. The society will not be able to hold regular monthly meetings or programs through this period because our groups are typically larger than the group size limits set. We will continue to monitor restrictions throughout the remainder of 2021 and continue providing online programs and video meetings for members. 
 
The GSSB Research Library located in the Family History Room at the Melbourne Public Library has been sanitized and cloth chairs removed. We have reopened for genealogical research. Our computers and subscription sites are again also available for use in the Family History Room. NOTICE: We are requiring patrons to adhere to wearing face coverings and to social distance expectations when using the library. While the Family History Room is available during regular library hours, we are only staffing it by appointment only, with at least a one day advance appointment.  To schedule a time, contact Dave Bishop by email at davidlbishop16@gmail.com

2019 Third Annual GSSB Yearbook

The GSSB has published the third annual issue of the "GSSB Yearbook: A Look Back" to document the work of the Society over the last year. 2019 was an active year and this publication will demonstrate much of what happened and the efforts and news related to the work we undertook to promote family history. Members can log in and find the new summary under "GSSB Archives." 
 
We hope to continue this each year to give an overview of our activities, accomplishments and news related to the Society.  It should also act as a quick reference guide if looking back at the past year. If you are already logged in and want to take a look, click this link.
