That's New to Me - Unfamiliar Websites for Your Genealogy
It's hard to keep up with all the different websites that can help you with your family history but there's a few core ones that are crucial to your research. In this presentation we will explore such websites as WorldCat, ArchiveGrid, and the Digital Public Library of America.
12:00pm - 1:00 pm on Saturday, February 16, 2019
Pat Stubblefield and her volunteers will be serving a hot lunch - you can always expect a delicious home-cooked meal - a main course, one of Pat's signature salads, a 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, February 13th, so we know how many to plan for. To make your reservation, email our Hospitality Chair, Miriam Benell: firstname.lastname@example.org.

This presentation will demonstrate, using a 5-step approach - techniques, methodology and resources for researching (and finding) your female ancestors.
