Weds Workshop – Ask a Stupid Question @ on Zoom
Sep 27 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Today’s the day to bring that genealogy question you’ve been too shy to ask for fear of ‘looking stupid!’ Remember, there’s ‘no such thing as a dumb question …’ and someone else in the ‘room’ probably needs that answer as much as you do.

Weds Workshop – Orphan Records @ on Zoom
Oct 18 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Have you ever been drawn to a photo or document rich with information for someone else’s family?  What about an odd piece of ephemera buried in your family’s memorabilia?  Some “orphan records” — those items which have lost their original relationships — have the potential to be returned or introduced to someone who never knew they existed.  Pam Hall will share her success with reuniting these “orphans” to their better homes.  Plus, if you’re inspired to join this cause, she has a few “orphans” patiently waiting further research.  Everyone is also invited to share their own stories of solving “orphan” mysteries.
