Date Speaker Program

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.
