WOLFEBORO — Beginning on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 the Wolfeboro Public Library in conjunction with The Lakes Region Genealogy Interest Group will be offering a series of workshops for anyone who is interested in genealogy. Each workshop in the series will be offered on the first Tuesday morning of the month from 10 a.m. to noon and will feature both manual methods and computer generated programs for recording genealogy.
The first workshop is for both beginner and more advanced genealogists. Packets of blank pedigree charts, family group sheets and research logs will be provided for those wishing to record their genealogy without the use of computer programs. For those wishing to use computer generated genealogical programs, Legacy Family Tree has donated discs of their 7.0 program.
The main portion of each Tuesday program will delve into not only the tried and true methods of researching family records, but will also address innovative solutions for uncovering those hidden and elusive family records, frequently known as "brick walls", records which often baffle family genealogists.
For a short portion of each Tuesday program, the newly released version of Family Search/Family Tree will be delved into in detail with weekly focus on mastery of just one aspect of this comprehensive research tool. Family Search/Family Tree allows the public to access a large portion of the worldwide digitized and indexed census records, birth records, death records, burial records, marriage records, probate records, land records and military records which are held in the Family History Library, the largest such library in the world. Unlike other available programs of this nature, there is no subscription fee required and no other fees charged in order to access these documented records.

LACONIA — Advance Auto Parts, Inc., a leading automotive aftermarket retailer of parts, batteries, accessories and maintenance items, will open its first store in Laconia at 163 Court Street, Suite 5, close to State Farm Insurance, today.
Company officials said they chose this location for the store because it's convenient to where their customers live and shop as well as the garages where they take their vehicles for repair.
David Armstrong is the new general manager and works with five other team members at the new Laconia location. A 15-year veteran of the automotive and retail sales industries, Armstrong has been with the Advance Auto Parts Team about three years.
The new store offers customers a wide range of parts and recognized national brands as well as several free services. Store team members will provide free installation for new windshield wipers and also offer a complimentary check of the vehicle's electrical system and old battery, as well as provide free installation of a new battery with purchase on most vehicles. The store offers fast parts delivery to local commercial customers such as professional mechanics and garages. During regular store hours, customers may drop off used motor oil and batteries for recycling – ensuring that these materials don't end up in landfills where they could harm the environment.
The store is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
