Stay home and stay healthy.
And also plan to join us on the research trip to Washington, DC, October 25-31, 2020. This year's trip is organized through the Portage Senior Center. Each day the bus will drop off and pick up researchers at the DAR library, the National Archives, and the Library of Congress. Click on the RESEARCH TRIPS
tab then select Washington, DC for the registration form and more details. Others on the trip will tour DC instead of researching - so bring a friend or family member along with you.
Thanks to the volunteers at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for hosting our February meeting. Seventy-four people attended to learn about the www.familysearch.org website.
The March program
will be Ruth Wilson of the Kalamazoo Public Library Local History Department. Ruth will speak about crafting obituaries - yours or anyone else's. See you there!
