Time:

7:00 PM

Welcome New Members
6:45 PM

Location:

Bellevue Regional Library

Topic:

World War II Case Study

Speaker:

Mary Kircher Roddy

Speaker: Mary Kircher Roddy is a Certified Public Accountant. She has been a genealogist for a number of years, becoming interested in her roots in anticipation of an extended trip to Ireland. She has a certificate from the Genealogy and Family History program at the University of Washington. Mary has had several articles published in Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy. She likens her genealogy research to the logic of a Sudoku puzzle with a big, juicy payoff at the end.

About the Program: World War II is the earliest war where we can actually speak to the veterans themselves, the men and women who served, but this precious resource is fading quickly so time is of the essence! This talk will present a case study, fleshing out a basic story of a pilot and crew of a B-17 shot down over Germany, illustrating how to find and access multiple sources to learn about the experiences of these heroes. Mary Roddy has written an article on her research into this story which appeared in the May/June 2012 issue of Family Chronicle magazine.
