Genealogy Club News

Kathy Booher

Are you a seasoned detective in genealogy research or just beginning your journey into the past? The Genealogy Club is a group of inquisitive-minded folks who are searching for the answers to “Where did I come from?”

Club dues are $15 per year (check or exact change), and new members are welcome to join us. Guests are invited to attend two meetings before becoming club members.

The next club meeting is scheduled for Feb. 2 at 1 p.m. in the Coyote Room at SaddleBrooke One. The topic is “How Newspapers Can Help Solve the Puzzle,” with Bridgette LeFevre as guest speaker. Bridgette is the owner of Roots Detectives, a genealogy research business. She has a passion for a great mystery and has been actively researching genealogy for 13 years.

We have been asked to share the following message with our members:
