WVGS Preparation for January 13, 2020 Public Program

Roadblock Rescue Team Assistance

The Wabash Valley Genealogy Society will present a panel of members to answer your questions during the January 2020 public program.  There are many who just don’t know how to proceed on breaking down that “brick wall” and the Society hopes that everyone can help each other by sharing each other’s knowledge and websites.  Bring your questions, sources and laptop.

Please send in your question(s) now, if they are lengthy, so that someone from the panel will be able to start working on them.  Questions such as:  computer help, navigating a certain website, finding websites, how to search for military ancestors, how to search for ancestors abroad, how to organize your genealogy, finding help on your missing person, using newspapers, new websites, finding ancestors in Europe, etc. are examples of what you may ask. 

Your participation is very much needed to make this program successful.  Registration forms (for questions) are available on the WVGS web page:  www.inwvgs.org

For more information, contact Pat Rogers at MrsGenealogy44@aol.com or e-mail wvgs@inwvgs.org.


Registration form, to submit questions ahead of time can be downloaded and printed at ROADBLOCK RESCUE TEAM.pdf
