The Grand Prairie Genealogical Society invites you to research your ancestry at an after-hours lock-in.  If you've never tried a Lock-In, you need to!  If you have, we look forward to seeing you again!
      What is a lock in? 
A time when we have the Grand Prairie Main Library all to ourselves for after hour’s research.  The Library provides a time and space exclusively for registrants.  The public is locked out and we are "locked in" (think secure).  This provides us an opportunity during extended hours to research and share without distraction.  "Special Fee-base, on-line resource sites" plus computer access to library data bases and the internet.  Roots Room access to the library’s print collection and lateral file photo archives.
We will have complimentary snacks, and cold drinks as well as a multi-item "bucket raffle".
