Amazing.  Might be interesting to see how they would be done today.

lady2This is a new blog for our chapter to share research, history, genealogy tips and what not.  It won’t be about chapter news and business, as that is what the chapter website is for.

I hope to have one posting a week and the first posts will be mostly about history trends and genealogy tips – until we get chapter members contributing. Please send me any insights or ideas for articles.
