Firing Up Your Genealogy Part 3

I know we've had some horrible weather this winter but according to the forecast Thursday should be dry and warm, comparatively speaking. Come on out to Part 3 of our Firing Up Your Genealogy workshops and bring your friends.

Seriously, do you have a friend who has asked you about starting their genealogy? Has someone shown an interest but doesn't know where to start? Bring them along. Our EGS members will be happy to "catch them up" on the past 2 sessions, give them some advice about where and how to start, and get them ready to hear our featured speaker for the evening.

Ginger Frere of the Newberry Library and her genealogy business, Information diggers, will be presenting "Turning Fiction to Fact: Using, Identifying and Citing Sources." Ginger is well-known to us at EGS and we're looking forward to hearing what she has to share about this important issue in genealogy research. Learning the importance of citing sources early in one's research can save countless hours later on.

The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm at the Gail Borden Public Library, 270 N Grove, Elgin, IL. The presentation will follow a short business meeting and a quick break for treats.

Hope to see you there

~ Becky
