11:00 am to 12:00 pm on March 16, 2019
Are You Registered?  . . .  Using the National Registor of Historic Places
Applications for the registration of historic places can be a resource and it’s a great way to learn about the places of your ancestors.  And they are accessible!
 
 
Lunch Break
12:00pm - 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 16, 2019
It's almost Saint Patrick's Day.  What does Pat Stubblefield have planned for our March lunch?  Corned beef and cabbagge?  A hearty Irish stew?  Or something entirely different?  We'll update this space as soon as we know.  Whatever it is, you can be sure it will be a delicious home-cooked meal featuring an entree, dessert, and beverage! 
As always, the lunch break is a great time to trade family history stories and fellowship with your fellow genealogists, and enjoy a good meal.  You can brown bag it, pick up lunch nearby, or order delivery, but why not save all that hassle, when for only a $5 suggested donation, you can have a hot lunch ready and waiting for you?  
Please RSVP by Wednesday, March 13th, so we know how many to plan for.  To make your reservation, email our Hospitality Chair, Miriam Benell: dandmbenell@earthlink.net.
