Please join us for our September Genealogy Chat on Zoom from 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM. We will have the usual chat and an update and demonstration of how to find the recently digitized images from around the world. You don't want to miss this one.
 
Topic:  Where were you when...? Sharing the story of your memories of important events in history.
Where were you when _____? We all remember where we were or what we were doing when something important happened in history. Have you written it down? As much as we love seeing stories from our ancestors, we should be cognizant of leaving those stories as well as our own for future generations. The possibilities are endless! Here are just some major dates in history for you to think about for “Where were you when.” Pick just one to share during the August Genealogy Chat.
