The Genealogy Center


The Genealogy Center

The Genealogy Center is an extension of the Carver Museum and Cultural Center and acts as a public resource for learning about family history. The Center provides access to genealogical information such as databases, books, instructive material and monthly seminars. Although the center is set up as a self-guided experience, it will provide limited genealogical assistance.

What the Genealogical Center Offers

The center houses nine computers that are available for public use, one conference room, genealogical reference material, and a printer. In addition, the center offers monthly meetings devoted to the practice of genealogy.
