My Genealogy Journey ~

The McDonald County Historical Society's first summer Research 101 workshop was yesterday. We had a great time and lots of information about researching your family history was presented. Attendees enjoyed learning about all that is involved in family history research and genealogy. 

Gayle Foster is lecturing about internet research.....

Our Society President, Raylene Lamb, talks about a variety of topics about family history research....

Dorothy Beauchamp presents research tips to the group....

Karen Jennings presented "Writing About and Documenting your Family Heirlooms" and "Writing Your Memories" in the afternoon. The workshop was a hit and a great success!  Participants left with some homework to do and prepare for July's workshop. 

Don't miss July 19th's workshop when the gals will present topics about Going Beyond Your Basic Research, Gathering Oral Histories, and Cemetery History & Research. The workshop is $20 and will be held in Pineville at the Historic Sheriff's House just south of the square, 10am to 2pm.
