Family History Faire 201910

  • October 19, 2019 – Members Presentation or Family History Faire

This is a chance for members to bring their research, family trees and stories,  albums or memorabilia, or DNA discoveries and show them off.   Members may reserve a full table for their display, half a table or just some space and any other special requirements (like access to an electrical outlet).  There will not be a presentation at the meeting.  The meeting is a time for everyone to see what other members are doing, ask questions about how or when, and maybe find common research paths or topics.  Setup for this meeting will begin at 12:30 pm.

A refreshment table will be available if you wish to bring something to share!

Guests are always welcome.
