The Genealogy Research Process: The WANDER Method
Genealogy research isn’t a matter of just getting more and more records. The drive to continually add more records leads us to going down rabbit holes, wasting time, and getting frustrated. It’s time to take a look at the research process so you can make more discoveries.
 
If you are not a WAGS member, you are welcome to attend.  Send an email to program@wagswhittier.org and an invitation will be sent to you.
*  There will be a brief business meeting prior the speaker's presentation.
