Behind the Doors and into the Boxes  (Meetings)
6:45 pm to 9:00 pm
Northland Public Library Meeting Room
David Grinnell, Coordinator of Archives and Manuscripts at the Archives & Special Collections Department at the University of Pittsburgh's Library System, will speak this evening on the collections and resources that are of value in genealogical and family research in the archives at Pitt. Since archival resources can seem hidden to the public, Grinnell will present various tools that promote access discovery in archives, and also discuss the strengths of the collections in Pitt's archives.
 
Prior to his arrival at Pitt, Grinnell was the Chief Archivist at the Library and Archives Division at the Senator John Heinz History Center. A Michigan native, he graduated from Albion College with a Bachelor's degree in History. In 2007, he received a Master's in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to these professional positions, he worked in retail sales and eventually became a library clerk in a public library in the Pittsburgh area. These non-professional positions have greatly influenced his professional outlook on the functions of libraries and specifically archival repositories.
 
In addition to his professional work, Grinnell engages in a variety of volunteer activities, including: Archivist for the United Methodist Church; Secretary of the Board of Directors of the Allegheny City Society (a neighborhood historical organization); President of the Grinnell Family Association of America, and Member of the Steering Committee of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference.

Understanding my Civil War Ancestor: The Search for Pieces to the Puzzle  (Meetings)
6:45 pm to 9:00 pm
Northland Public Library Meeting Room
Christopher D. George will be sharing the event that sparked his interest in genealogy and eventual fascination with family history. In addition, he will explain the discovery of his Civil War ancestor and the quest to understand what his great-great grandfather’s life was like before, during, and after the war. In telling the twists and turns of his genealogical travels, which led to the publishing of his book Day-by-day with the 123d Pennsylvania Volunteers, Mr. George will discuss the many resources and repositories that were helpful in understanding both his relative and what life was like in 1860s Pittsburgh.
 
Mr. George, a graduate of both the University of Cincinnati and the University of Pittsburgh, teaches in the Upper St. Clair School District near Pittsburgh, PA. An avid genealogist, he has spent nearly 20 years researching his great-great grandfather and the time he served as a member of the 123d Pennsylvania Volunteers. He was presented with the William Rimmel Award in 2017 by the Allegheny City Society for his contribution to the preservation and understanding of that part of Pittsburgh that was known as the city of Allegheny. He was also awarded a 2nd Place TAZ Award (Nonfiction Category) from The Authors’ Zone in 2017. Mr. George has written articles about the men of the 123d PVI for both the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Previously, he published a family history titled The George Memory Book in 2008. Chris lives with his wife and three children in South Fayette Township, PA.
