The main presentation is:
"Help with Searching for Records, Maps, Family Histories at the Biggest Genealogical Resource Center in the World"
Kathy Hudson, Donna Wendt, Ann Stout, Judi Moore and Jean Neuer traveled, as a Society "Field Trip" to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City from Oct 6th to Oct 13th. It was five days spent at the Library and one day to see the sights of the City. Follow the group when they are together, then follow them as they go their divergent research paths. Kathy will discuss her finds of some of the questions members, who could not go, submitted to her beforehand. Ann will discuss how she approached her research problem with the advise of the volunteer research assistants. Donna will show you the group activities and discuss Wales, English and American research. Judi will delve into the possibilities and problems she found with German research.
News from the Genealogy world will be discussed, including a wonderful new turn of events to make English/Welsh research easier using the GRO (General Records Office) re-formatted online index of Births and Deaths.
Bring the paragraph you wrote, to share, about a close ancestor.
Stanley Yon gave brief history of our meeting venue: 45 years old it was built as a project by four churches; refurbishing is ongoing in various parts of the building and as each tenant moves out. The meeting room is open to all non-profits, and as a benefit to tenants that may be interested in programs outsiders may bring in.
