Woodbury County Genealogy Society November Meeting
Saturday November 14, 2015
First Presbyterian Church
6th & Nebraska
Sioux City, Iowa

10:00 Class: Brickwalls
11:00 Break
11:15 Business Meeting
11:30: Program: Maps (Track your family Movements )

During this month’s meeting, each of us will have the opportunity to learn from Norm how to map out the migration trail of one ancestor.
What you need to bring to the November meeting is:

1) The name of your ancestor who moved at least three times during his/her life.

2) The locations of where he/she lived.

3) A general timeline for his/her moves.

Here’s an example of what information you need to bring to the meeting: My great grandfather was born in Ireland, date unknown. He left Ireland and moved to New York and was living in Brooklyn in 1839 when his first child was born. Based on census records, he was still living in Brooklyn in 1850. According to the 1860 census, he moved to Chicago, but the exact date remains unknown. He was buried in Chicago in 1861.
Once you have created a migration map, the second step for turning it into a Fair Project is easy.

Bring your laptop or tablet

Coffee and tea will be provided bring treats to share.
