Our December meeting is this Tuesday the 13th at 1 in the Navajo Room, Social Hall.
Kathy Goodrich is our guest speaker. Kathy has a graduate degree from Northern Arizona University. She teaches genealogy classes and is a staff member at the Buckeye Arizona Family History Center. Her talk is titled “Everything I Know About My Family’s History I Learned from Nancy Drew.” As she describes it:
“Get ready to start the adventure of a lifetime, solving the biggest mystery of them all –your heritage! Are you curious about those family stories you’ve heard whispered all your life? Have you ever wondered how your ancestors fit into history? Do you want to learn how family history research can give you a new perspective on life? If you don’t know much about genealogy, or if you have started tracing your roots and are discouraged, then this presentation is for you! Improve your self-confidence as you discover secrets of successful ancestor-sleuths. Learn how to breathe life into your family tree using clues that lead beyond names and dates on a pedigree chart. Come prepared to be entertained as well as amazed by the fascinating world of 21st century genealogy!”
Visitors are welcome to attend our general meetings. Kathy’s talk will be a good introduction if you’re think about diving into genealogy.
