YOU ARE THE PROGRAM!

What have you been doing with your genealogy research? Brick walls coming down? Finding living relatives? DNA discoveries? New (to you) resources or repositories for researching pleasure? (Please plan to keep comments to 5 minutes or less; sign up to share when you arrive. Members have first sharing options, though guests are welcome and certainly invited to share, as time allows.)

Bring something to share (main dish, appetizers, desserts, salads, chip/dip, veggies, ?? . . . If bringing a dish that requires a serving utensil, please bring the necessary equipment) Drinks (water) will be provided. Please, no soda unless for your personal consumption and ABSOLUTELY no alcohol! Let’s keep prep simple and cleanup quick! Please plan to take away your leftovers, dishes, and anything else you brought with you at the end of the evening.

Due to library hours, we need to stop at 7:30 to allow enough cleanup time .  .  . we are the cleanup crew and soliciting help accordingly.
