Speaker will be our member June Lindquist. She will tell us about discovering a large box of papers and documents dating from the 1850s pertaining to a great, great grandfather's life and how this aroused her curiosity and interest in genealogy.

June will explain how she and other family members sorted evidence and proofs into a booklet. She will discuss the convenience of computer sources, computer government sources, and gathering material from far flung and unknown cousins to sketch together family evidence. Great, great grandpa turned out to be quite a colorful character. This is going to be a delightful meeting.
