Overview: Unlike a reference interview, genealogists have specific requests, and may have a little or no knowledge of the types of resources that the library can offer. It is very important that the librarians ask questions that will help them understand what the researcher is looking for. This session will cover the basic questions that are specific to genealogy enquiries.
