Meeting 13 June 2009
Cemeteries & Genealogical Research was the topic for the June presentation at the Honolulu County Genealogical Society. This was given by me, Donna Wendt as an "Open Office" presentation using my new "netbook" attached to our Society's own digital projector. All went well. I will list the websites I discussed, that have to do with cemeteries, many of which I borrowed from Kory Meyerink as reported by Sharon Haddock in "Mormon Times" of March 16, 2009.

Next Saturday, June 20th, 2009, at 9am we will meet at the parking lot at Oahu Cemetery at 2162 Nuuanu Ave, Honolulu, HI. Hawaii's own "History Detective & Graveyard Historian," Nanette Napoleon will be our tour guide for the 2 hours of our adventure of discovery at the cemetery. The cost is $10 per person, and everyone is invited.
Don't forget that our next month's meeting is July 11th, 2009 and will be our annual ethnic foods pot luck luncheon. Everyone is invited to bring a food that reflects a specific culture, especially their own. This is a fun gathering and all are welcome to attend.
