2013.12 News: More on Genealogy

Walker Crawford, who gave the presentation on genealogy back at our November meeting, has informed us that those who were left wanting more might well be interested in the talk "What Is Genealogy, Anyway?" at the upcoming meeting of the Dane County Area Genealogical Society, Thu. Jan. 2, 7:00 PM, in the chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4505 Regent St. (intersection of Regent St. and Segoe Rd.).

The speaker will be George L. Findlen. The talk is an introduction to genealogy. It answers 4 questions:
  • What is genealogy?
  • Why do people do genealogy?
  • How do I learn how to do genealogy?
  • Where do I go to get records about my family?
A handout augments answers to these questions made in the talk. Old hands are validated in what they do; newcomers are informed of what they must do.

SWAG board member Jim Benes is also vice-president of DCAGS.
