No presenter

This month we will be offering a help session where you can bring your questions and genealogical problems.  Often, our members are able to help with suggestions and other advise.  So often we have people researching the same names or the same areas of the country and are willing to share with others the process they have been through to accomplish their research.  Bring any documents or other materials that you want to share or have someone look at to give advice.
