July Morning Meeting Review

MY BAD!! Sorry about giving the wrong program information in my last post. Thanks to Ann for making the correction.
However, if you came to the meeting you know what an interesting and fun gathering it was!! Gail Hershenzon presented Do's and Dont's of Cemetery Research with great enthusiasm, expertise and humor. She shared her personal experiences as a volunteer at the Woodmere Cemetery in Detroit, Michigan. She handles all the cemetery's genealogy requests and, also, has placed burial information on their website. If you have Detroit ancestors, you might want to check out www.woodmerecemeteryresearch.com . She also suggested using the Michigan website for death certificates 1897-1920 and much more. (Use the SEEK section of the website.)

Since our normal meeting rooms were being used, we met in the library's meeting room 1 upstairs. This is a brand new very comfortable meeting room; however, Not Treats Allowed. Well, that was simply not acceptable; how can genealogists meet without some food involvement??!! Our hostesses for the day came to the rescue and created a wonderful tailgate party for us. As you can see, we had a fun, ad hoc, Independence Day feast!!


  1. Becky, as usual you are doing a great job with this blog site.

  2. Tailgate party, I love it! What a great workaround. Glad you got your treats.
