October 5, 2017 - Nell White will present her program "Women of the Mayflower" and we will include resources for finding pilgrim ancestors.
November 2, 2017 - Cheryl Lang of the Midcontinent Genealogy Library in Independence, MO, near Kansas City, will present a program on the resources available there (a prime genealogical research center that is closer to us than Salt Lake City or Allen County Library) (exact title to be determined).
December 7, 2017 - Two round table topics to be determined I am hoping that one might be on researching Arkansas ancestors as we appear to have a number of folks with those and perhaps another could be on update for DNA news, including the new Ancestry Genetic Communities being added to results for Ancestry.com DNA tests -- still too early to know for sure and I am interested in getting suggestions for round table topics
