Genealogy questions can be answered by phone, email, or written letter. Examples of phone inquiries would be questions about what the library owns, an address, or information on a research topic. The staff is not able to look up names or conduct any kind of in-depth research over the phone. We are also unable to make long distance phone calls or faxes so email communication is best for those out of state who wish to request information. A limited amount of research, including census or Indian roll look-ups, can be conducted by letter or email to 8316 E. 93rd St., Tulsa, OK 74133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a copy of an obituary in the Tulsa Tribune or Tulsa World, contact the Research Center at email@example.com. Newspapers and city directories dating back to the early days of Tulsa can be requested through the Research Center.
Photocopying and printing is 10 cents per page.

Genealogy Workshop with Cyndi Ingle
Cyndi Ingle is the owner and creator of Cyndi’s List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet , www.CyndisList.com, a categorized index to over 336,000 online resources. Cyndi, a genealogist for more than 37 years, is the author of three books for genealogical research on the Internet titled, Netting Your Ancestors, Cyndi's List, and Planting Your Family Tree Online: How To Create Your Own Family History Web Site.
Cyndi’s topics will include:
A Guided Tour of Cyndi’s List 2.0: A brief history of Cyndi’s list followed by an overview of how to navigate the newly updated site. Learn how to effectively use this valuable resource tool as your jumping-off point onto the Internet.
The Hidden Web: Digging Deeper: The “hidden web” lies buried within the collections for commercial websites, libraries, archives, and museums. We will explore resources that are invisible to Google and uncover hidden gems of information that may not be found easily through a search engine query.
Building a Digital Research Plan: Using Internet databases and catalogs we will build a research plan to answer a specific research questions. We will walk through the process of planning, researching for the plan, and keeping track of what has been researched.
Remedies for Copy & Paste Genealogy: Family trees and the information they contain are easily copies and re-published by others online. This means errors are duplicated many times over. We will discuss solutions for dealing with these issues.
This event will be held at the Hardesty Library, Frossard Auditorium
Free and open to the public.
