Organizing all those notes, files, photos and documents meticulously collected over the years - the bane of every genealogist!

This meeting will be a roundtable discussion led by President Sally Stevens and EBGS Board member. We'll learn what works, good points on record keeping, tips on preparing a research or library trip, etc.

Bring your ideas, hints, solutions or your problems and hang-ups. Let's put our heads together and see how we can help one another.
