Description of Program:

All family historians experience the frustration of the brick walls in our research-those dead ends where we're sure there are clues somewhere but can't find them.  What can we do?  What have others done?  Today's panel will share their brick walls as well as their breakthroughs.  Perhaps their experiences will help you.

Title: Armchair Genealogy

Speakers:  Victoria Sullivan, Genealogist and AGS Member

Description of Program:

Each year brings more and more genealogical records into the reach of family history researchers.  All that is needed is a computer with Internet access, a comfy chair, and lots of time.  Keeping up with the new websites is a demanding job.  Victoria Sullivan will lead us in looking at some of the most useful new and old sites.

Title: Summer Stories

Speakers:  Everyone!

Description of Program:

This month we have our annual storytelling meeting.  We genealogists often find ourselves surrounded by people who don't share our interest in family history.  So we need to take time to listen, support, encourage, help, rejoice, or sympathize with each other.  It's so much fun to hear delightful tales of the experiences of AGS members.  Also bring your ideas for next year's programs.  For this meeting, we will circle up in groups small enough that everyone will have a chance to tell about their recent genealogical adventures.

Title: Writing Family History

Speaker:  To be announced

Description of Program:

How are you doing in the area of getting your family history research out of the notes and records and into some form that can be shared with others?  Today we will be inspired by some who have taken this big step and will share their experiences.  Perhaps you will find help for the indecisions that are holding you back.

Title: "Show and Tell" at the Holiday Party

Description of Program:

Our annual holiday party is a great time of fellowship as members bring heirlooms or items of genealogical interest and tell of their history or special meaning.  We encourage attendees to come in costumes of their native lands or in the clothing of an ancestor.  Members are also invited to bring a holiday dish to share with the group during the party time.  This is a great way to end the year.
