Spring Seminar Was Great!

Thanks mainly to the efforts of our EWGS program chair, Shirley Penna-Oakes, our March 2nd Spring Seminar was a great success and wonderful day........... if you attended, I'm sure you agree. And if you missed..... well, darn sorry.

Washington State Genealogical Society president, Mike McKinnon, spoke a few minutes about WSGS and then gave a terrific presentation on using some of the lesser-known features of Google.

He was followed by our own Miriam Robbins teaching us about City Directories, how valuable they can be to our research and where to locate them. After a nice long lunch break, EWGS's Digital Digest coordinator, Dani Lee McGowan, shared memories of her month-long trip to Ireland and some exciting news about the Morbeth Roll.

Thanks to Bill Hire for being our technical guru, to Mary Holcomb, Mary Leske and Georgia Welton for the hospitality spread and to our program chair, Shirley Penna-Oakes....... who was quipping that she is the only Italian you know who does not cook.
