Meeting: First Thursday, 1:00 PM
Purpose: To leave an heirloom for our children and grandchildren, learn the fundamentals of genealogy and investigate new approaches to searching our ancestry.
Co-Chairs: Dianne McKenzie and Marilyn Fecht
Trace your ancestry to leave a lasting bequest to your family. You may discover a distinguished war hero, royal ties, or even a colorful scoundrel hiding in the branches of your family tree. We are enlightened by speakers, workshops, shared stories, research tips, memoirs, and field trips. Beginners are warmly welcomed, and the experienced are treasured.
All meetings will be held at the home of Dianne McKenzie unless otherwise indicated.
