How to use FamilySearch for research, and how to order microfilm for library use.
Wanted ~ Dead or Alive
Saturday, September 21 ~ 10:30 am to 12:30 pm ~ TnGenSoc Lecture Room
Guest speaker Therese Fisher: "Genealogy typically is the progression back in time as we struggle to uncover the clues that give us the parents of the known generation. But many of us have had occasion to bring the lines forward . . . to learn about living descendants of our ancestors. It could be a reunion or learning who now holds the family bible. How we approach both types of research is different enough to present problems if we don't have the correct tools. This lecture will provide tools that I have learned over the past 15 years performing forensic genealogy." Visit Fisher Associates for additional information.
