Mo’s Clam Chowder Fundraiser
This year OGS is participating in the Mo’s Clam Chowder Fundraiser. It is a clam chowder base and comes in a 1 quart bag. It is not frozen and will keep for up to 3 weeks in the fridge or can be frozen for later use. This is a great way for you and your friends to help support the Society and get something good in return.
Mo's Clam Chowder is an excellent choice for a cold winter evening, a rainy afternoon, Christmas Eve, and New Years Eve dinners.Or when you get tired of leftover Thanksgiving turkey. All you have to do is add whole milk and heat!
It is very easy to do. Print off the attached flyer
and make copies to share with friends and co-workers; attach to an email to friends and family and share on your Facebook page.
Fill out the bottom of the form, tear/cut off and mail it in with your check. Remember to keep the top part so you will remember when to do the pickup. You have until November 10th to get your order in.
You can order for family who live outside of the area and either keep until you see them or ship it using dry ice with either USPS, UPS or FedEx. They all have information on how to do this. Go to search and ask “can I ship dry ice” and they will tell you how to do it.
Plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to class.
Get Started Using DNA in Your Genealogical Research
Is your genealogy research plagued by missing records, ancestors who didn’t tell the truth, and other obstacles? DNA testing can potentially break down these brick walls.DNA doesn’t lie, but it can be a lot of work to squeeze the truth out of it. This class will discuss how DNA research can add information to your paper record genealogical research. We will cover the basics of DNA so that you can be an informed consumer of the different DNA tests available on the market, the different types of DNA, the kinds of genealogical questions each test can answer, and how to get tested, and basic information about understanding your test results.
