Genealogy Meeting to Cover DNA for Adoptees

Dec. 26, 2018 – Family History Detectives, Salina Public Library’s monthly educational genealogy gathering, will focus on DNA for Adoptees during its first meeting of the year. The group will meet from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Jan. 10 in the library’s Prescott Room. Librarian Barbara Mulvihill will give the presentation.

Genetic genealogy can be used by adoptees to find their birth families. Mulvihill will cover the basic process of completing genetic testing, as well as some of the benefits and pitfalls of using this method.

Mulvihill has more than 30 years of experience with genealogy research and has lead personal history recording efforts at the library, including StoryCatchers and the oral history recording project for Kansas Stories of the Vietnam War. She is the recipient of a 2018 Lana Jordan Developing Artist Grant from Salina Arts and Humanities.

Family History Detectives, formerly known as the Genealogy Club, meets August through November and January through May. Upcoming topics include Victorian mourning traditions, tombstone rubbings and the annual lock-in and brag session. Genealogist of all experience levels are welcome. Meetings are free and do not require registration.

Photographer Brings ‘A Different Perspective’ to Gallery 708

Nov. 28, 2018 Salina photographer Douglas Hoesli will exhibit his work Nov. 30-Dec. 28 at the Salina Public Library’s Gallery 708 in the south lobby. An artist reception will be Dec. 7 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. with refreshments and a chance to hear the artist talk about his exhibition, “A Different Perspective.”

Hoesli has been photographing for two years. He took a photography course in college on a whim and became passionate about the process. In 2010, he was injured in a single-car accident that left him partially paralyzed. After years of recovery, Hoesli rediscovered his love of photography which in turn helped him find his spark for life. The work in “A Different Perspective” is the product of challenging personal and artistic boundaries.  

“This last summer I found myself spending most afternoons downtown around Santa Fe just exploring our streets and alleyways. I would photograph many different things from well-known local landmarks to small barely noticeable tile work surrounding a door that is in complete disrepair,” Hoesli said. “I feel if my photographs say anything, it is that beauty is all around us in various forms. I try to see the possibilities in the ordinary subjects that others may not notice the majority of the time.”

Hoesli’s photographs can be viewed at Douglas Hoesli Photography on Facebook.

The public is welcome to view the exhibit during library hours — 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1-6 p.m. Sunday.
