by Carolyn Leonard

Ms Wall is a lecturer in Women's and Gender Studies program at Norman. She holds a Juris Doctorate degree from OU and is originally from Illinois.

"I will be discussing some of the historic points about early divorce law and how ancestral records may be located in the civil court records," Wall said.

Dr. Wall will be assisted by her co-worker, Erin Taylor, a disability advocate and genealogist.

The Edmond Genealogical Society meeting is free and open to the public, beginning with a social time at 6:00 p.m., with the program starting promptly at 6:30.
