Have some old family photos or documents you need to scan? Bring them to the meeting and we will show you how to do it! FWGS recently donated towards the Library project to purchase Flip Scanners for the Genealogy Unit. We all want to see them and find out how to use them. Library Staff will give us a demonstration and instruction. (Meet in the Tandy Auditorium FIRST, then after business and refreshments, we will go downstairs.)

March Meeting Flyer

Speaker: Debbie Pearson

Topic: Using City Directories

Once upon a time there were Phone Books and City Directories where you could look up information on your friends and your community. (And not just for large cities—even small towns.) These directories can yield many details vital to our genealogical research. Come learn where to find them and how to use them.


April Meeting Flyer
April

Speaker: Bernard N. Meisner

Topic: The Value of Collateral Line Research

Researching collateral lines (aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws, etc.) can reveal information not discovered in your direct lineage research. It can add to the overall historical story of your family or lead to others researching the family and break through brick walls. Bernard will show examples from his own family research.
