FINDING THE DOTS...CONNECTING THE DOTS
Speaker - John Rawlinson

John Rawlinson will tell us how he began with a limited and bare framework of genealogy and by connecting all the 'dots' of information gathered, created a history.

A real story of imagining where information may be found, how to search for it and gather seemingly irrelevant bits of data.  The next step was to creatively and interpretively connect the relationships between the data.  Then, the process begins anew with renewed imagining and a search for additional information.  The result/goal is a comprehensive and interesting story.

Meetings are open to all and guests are always welcome.
