Annual Dinner Completely Booked plus March Meeting
by Peggy Cooley
February is dinner month! Time for us to gather with good food and friends and go on an France. In fact, it's so popular, we have filled the dining room and are unable to
accept any more reservations, unfortunately.
In March, Steven Morrison will talk about buckling down to writing along with citing
sources. April is our Annual Seminar; don't forget to register! Barbara Houtenbrink and
Connie Bailey round out the year.
I need to ask for help with what I'm now calling the Surname Project. This is much bigger
than I initially imagined, so I'd like to make the product something our Society will be proud
to present. Even if you have not volunteered before, please consider it.
Message from President Eileen Dodge
How to Tell If You Are An Addicted Genealogist
When you are in a different city do you look through the phone book to find people
that have the same surname as one of your ancestors?
Do you get excited when you drive by a cemetery?
Do you talk about your deceased ancestors as though they were still a live?
Does your librarian or the person that works at the archives know your whole life story?
Do you check the obituaries everyday?
Do you spend your vacation tracking down ancestors in county courthouses?
Can you remember the date an ancestor died but you can't remember to feed the pets?
Instead of an emergency kit in your car you have a research kit?
If you said yes to more than one of these you are an addicted genealogist!
