Here are the details of our upcoming program for Tuesday evening, April 11, 2017:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Barbara Peterson. Barbara will present a program titled “Ancestral Stories, Fact or Fiction?: Researching the Legends”.
We all have great stories of our ancestors. Military heroes? Scoundrels? Stowaways? Sea Captains? Sounds good. But are they real? Maybe we just want to let the stories exist. Maybe you really want to know. Barbara will provide us with a case study review on just such an ancestor. Hear how she went about substantiating the story or perhaps even refuting it.
Barbara Peterson has been an active participant at our monthly genealogy programs. Her research skills have developed over time from a novice researcher to a highly skilled researcher. She has also become an expert on genealogical DNA and has previously presented a program on that topic at our library. This program’s case study is based on research she provided to a client.
The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
