GENEALOGY CHAT, Saturday 9/26/2020
 
Please join us! for the OGS Genealogy Chat on Zoom at 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM.
 
This months topic:  If I could go back in time, which ancestor would I visit and why
Think about that genealogy brick wall you have and which ancestor might solve it for you. Is there someone you wish to know better? We all have different reasons for wanting to talk to an ancestor, come tell us about it.
 
Everyone is invited to join us,  so invite you friends, family and genealogy buddies. Everyone will need to register, just like you, by sending an email to Education. The link will be emailed to everyone on Saturday morning.
