Our January Meeting

Please join us on January 15 at 2pm to hear Sara Cochran presenting on Two Steps Forward, One Step Back: Is this Genealogy or the Cha-Cha?

Revisiting and reevaluating our early research and home sources of information might seem like a waste of time, but often, it’s the key to getting past a roadblock in our research. We’ll discuss techniques for finding new clues in records we already have and look at several small case studies to see the value of taking the time to go backward in order to go forward.
