Columbus Metropolitan Library will have it's first "Genealogy Lock-In" during the Ohio Genealogical Society's annual conference which is being held in Columbus this year.  The lock-in will be Friday, April 1, 2011 from 6:30pm to 9pm.    We have an extensive genealogy collection with resources for Ohio, the United States and beyond.  Click here for more information about our genealogy collection.   There will be access to Ancestry Library Edition, HeritageQuest and the Internet.   All family history enthusiasts (not just conference attendees) are welcome to visit the library during the lock-in.  So bring your family history research and spend some time at our library!  Parking will be free Friday evening with the garage gates opening at 6:30. 

Columbus Metropolitan Library's Main Library is located at 96 S. Grant Ave., Columbus, OH  43215 and is about a 5 minute walk from the conference hotel (the Hyatt on Capitol Square).  The library's parking  garage is accessible from an alley called Library Park North.    Click here to check out our the library's genealogy page.
For more information or questions, please call 614-645-2275, or stop by the Franklin County Genealogical and Historical Society/Columbus Metropolitan Library booth at the conference.  You may also send questions to us by email at

If you can't make it to the lock-in please note that our library's regular hours are Monday-Thursday 9-9, Friday-Saturday 9-6 and Sunday 1-5. 

I look forward to seeing everyone at the conference and hope you can spend some time at our library.
