*May Meeting*

The Northwest Arkansas Genealogical Society will meet Monday, May 22 at 6 PM at the Bentonville Public Library.

Marcia has worked on genealogy for over 30 years, been a professional genealogist for 10 years, and a member of the DAR for 25 years.  She also enjoys needlework and history.
