WAGS Members & Friends Show & Tell *
It's July, time for a WAGS midsummer tradition that dates back to our beginning.   We invite WAGS members and friends to share about their family history.  This could include bringing a family heirloom and telling a story about it, sharing an interesting fact or recollection of a family member, or explaining how one broke through a brick wall to find an ancestor. 
This will be a "Hybrid Meeting."  We will be meeting in person at the Sorensen Library, and on Zoom.
WAGS members will receive a reminder email which will include the Zoom sign-in information. 
All are welcome - if you are not a WAGS member, and would like to attend on Zoom, send an email to program@wagswhittier.org.

If you would like to share, sign up at our June meeting, or contact our Program Chairs at program@wagswhittier.org.
This event is not sponsored or endorsed by LA County Library.
