February Meeting 

​18 February 2017
Program: "A Thread, a Puzzle, a Mystery, a Treasure Hunt?"
Meeting Speaker: William J Priest

Location: TBA

No matter how, or what, we relate it to, genealogy is a hobby that uses all of our senses and knowledge to gather, evaluate, manage and store information.

This presentation will compare our search to:
> assembling a puzzle – taking pieces with odd edges and assembling them into something that makes sense
> solving a mystery – using deduction, like Sherlock Holmes, to find the information we need
> finding a treasure – using clues to find information that helps us fill in holes in our family trees
> following a thread – using it to follow a path to find information along the way
