2017 Calendar of Events
If you would like to be considered as a speaker to give a genealogy or history oriented presentation at one of our monthly events, please contact Jim Johnson at email@example.com
We strive to offer educational programs that are genealogical or historically oriented. Frequently, in addition to our monthly featured program, we provide a short (usually 15-20 minutes) 'hornbook' session by an Education Committee member that focuses on a genealogy research topic, plus a 'Bits and Pieces' segment that details interesting genealogy news, tips, and research sources.
