The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Jeanne Larzalere Bloom. Jeanne will present a program titled “Miracles, Mysteries & Mayhem: Online Family Trees”.
We want to build on the research of others but those online family trees often contain miracles, mysteries and mayhem. Does the tree need to be pruned? Learn effective techniques to determine if branches on a tree are diseased or if they are healthy.

She conducts research projects for government agencies, attorneys, authors, newspapers, heir-search firms, professional genealogists, family researchers. Jeanne writes articles for scholarly journals and society publications and is a frequent lecturer at conferences, workshops, and institutes.
