Our March Meeting will be Thursday the 14th.
Our Program will be Underutilized Resources
Presented by Pat Gordon
Before the Internet, some really useful resources were unknown to genealogists, difficult to find or time consuming to use. None of these reasons are valid today, yet many researchers don’t realize this. Pat will tell us about rarely used university collections, often overlooked federal records and little-known state records. Many of these resources are now available online—if you know how to look for them.
Pat Gordon is an avid family historian who enjoys learning about her ancestors’ daily lives. Not just their birth, marriage and death data. And, Pat has found that these often-unused resources can fill-in the gaps between the vital records.
Pat is a former newspaper reporter with the Dallas Morning News and recently retired journalism lecturer at the University of Texas at Arlington.
Please join us at 6:30 PM, Thursday, March 14th. Admission is free and guests are always welcome.
