Life takes interesting twists and turns. As genealogists, we work hard to capture the events that happened in the lives of our ancestors. You can add so much texture to your family story if it has the history of the places attached to it and can answer questions as to why your family came to a certain place. Please join us as Mary Taylor presents History vs Genealogy: Bringing Together your Family History with Genealogy and History.
Also, don’t forget the BGS Annual Project Fair will be Saturday, October 27th! Ribbons will be awarded to the top three entries!
