Alot going on with this committee. But we can always use more help. You know those records that you are looking for in another state, we'll as we are extracting those same records here, we hope someone in another state is doing the same. You can see why it is important to join in, it is not difficult, hand writting might be a challenge, but there is lots of support to help you. Find out if you would like to do this.

Share your successful finds and brickwalls. What is a brickwall? You have been researching a person, or family and have exhausted your searches and can't think of what to do next.

The session may include a webinar and/or a demo of a research tool. Guests welcome
