9:30 am - 12:30 pm PDT
 
Really??? — Proving and Refuting Family Lore - Many genealogists have heard handed-down family stories. How can you separate truth from fiction before you pass those yarns along to the next generation? Learn ways to dig deeper and find corroborating evidence to support (or refute) the tales.  Friends don’t let friends share myths. 
 
A World of Clues - Using County Histories to Find your Family - Hundreds of county histories were created in the late 19th and early 20th century.  They are filled with valuable information about the counties where your ancestors lived and include biographical and genealogical detail about some of the prominent citizens in the area. Learn where to find these books, and use them to explore your ancestor’s life and community. Even if your ancestor wasn’t featured in a biographical sketch, a county history can be a great resource for discovering your ancestor’s story.

Registration Fee:  $25 members and $30 nonmembers. Attend both Saturdays for $45 for members and $55 for nonmembers.
