Here's some details about the presenters and their presentations to help you make your Session B choice:

Dale Soden is a history professor at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington as well as an author of several books. The Civilian Conservation Corps was very active in the Pacific Northwest during the Great Depression, and Dr. Soden will be giving an informative presentation on this chapter of our history. Did you have an ancestor or relative who served in the CCC?

Gordy Struve is a member of the Northeast Washington Genealogical Society and the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society. He will be telling us all about his fun, new genealogical toy/tool, the iPAQ, a personal digital assistant and pocket PC! Come find out how it can be used to improve your genealogical life!

Lois Thomason is a member of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society. Did you know that Washington State and other Pacific Northwest states were destinations for many immigrants from Norway, Sweden, and Denmark? Drawing on her own personal research experience, Lois will help you find out what genealogy resources are available for your Scandinavian ancestors and where to locate the records.

Sue Richart is another member of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society, as well as a member of the New England Historic and Genealogical Society. She will be doing her presentation on the wonderful databases available on the NEHGS subscription website. Founded in 1847, more and more of NEHGS's collection is going online.
