Meeting held 24 May 2017 at Lake House:
I want to shout out a great "thank you" to Bob Silkett for doing such a marvelous presentation and taking us through the use of our local library for free access to genealogical research and then deep diving to show us all how to better use Heritage Quest (free through the library) with city directories, books, people, census records and more. Thank you. Click here, to find the handout that Bob provided as reference for each of us to do our own research. Thank you.
There will be no evening meetings in June, July, or August.
I discussed the fabulous BYU Webinar on "Digging Deeper Into Google for Genealogists" by James Tanner that was just posted. Click here for the Youtube version. For the language translation portion skip ahead to 14:55 minute mark.
I will put together a "Death Certificate" homework fun assignment for later this year.
See you all on June 14, 2017 1:30-3:30 PM at the Lake House for Bob Silkett's presentation on Newspaper research using the free library access.
A great welcome back to Joan Reed who is re-igniting her interest in doing genealogical research.
Have fun on your family heritage journey.
