A FUNNY THING HAPPENED WHILE WRITING A FAMILY HISTORY
Speaker:  Member, Carolyn Storm

Interesting facts came to light while digging into my grandparent's history.  My great grandfather may not have been my great grandfather after all!  Oops! 

Plus I will share a simple way to put your ancestor's story into a short biography.

AND, WE ARE HAVING A SILENT AUCTION

Members are urged to donate their unwanted genealogical/history books, etc. they no longer need or want.  Bids will begin at 25 cents and increase in 25 cent increments.  We will only have quarters and ones for change....Be Prepared. 

This would be a good meeting to attend if you are new to genealogy or for our members to bring a friend.  All are welcome!

Meetings are held at the Oakland Family History Center, 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland.

GENEALOGY OF RENEE KAUFMAN
Speaker:  Steve Morse

The genealogy of Renee Kaufman is a fascinating tale of how to construct a genealogy when you have very little information to begin with.  You will likely get some hints and ideas from Steve's program that will encourage you to carry on n spite of the brick wall you think you are facing in your family research.

APRIL MEETING

FAMILYSEARCH.ORG
Speaker:  Ralph Seversen

It's time once again for an update on what is new and how to navigate our way through FamilySearch.org's vast archives...and nobody does it better than Ralph Seversen.

We know this website can provide valuable clues and information that will answer questions and lead us to further understand and know our ancestors - but sometimes finding those clues or that specific information can be difficult.

We are hoping this presentation will help you better find your way through the website and discover some valuable information relating to the ancestors in your family tree.

EBGS meets every second Wednesday of each month (with the exception of August) at the Oakland Family History Center Library, 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland.

Meetings begin at 10 a.m.  Guests are always welcome - so, won't you join us!
