Favorite Ancestors and How to Find Them
We all have them — the aunt, uncle or cousin we tell great stories about. They are often famous, infamous, heroes, or not so much. You know, the ones everyone brags about or the ones the aunties stop talking about when the kids get too close.
This meeting, CHGS members will tell us all about a relative that they find interesting and how they discovered the facts and determined how much of the stories are true. We’ll also talk about the ones WE discovered during our research and how to discover a fantastic ancestor.
Gone with the Wind The 1856 Cedar Hill Tornado describes the town, the damage, and how it recovered and prospered after the storm nearly blew it off the face of the earth. We name the victims, describe their lives and tell their family histories for family historians to connect their families with these pioneers.
