For those 70-some EWGS members and guests, our Spring Seminar on April 5th with Leslie Lawson was a great learning time. Shirley Penna-Oakes arranged for Leslie to come and introduced her to us. Leslie then taught us some great points on Newspaper Research, Cemetery Research, Going Onsite to Research, and Locating People in the Last Century.
Leslie explained that her website has her ToolBox wherein she has posted "thousands" of helpful links that she uses and freely shares with us. Leslie is a forensic genealogist which means she does most of her work on cases that have legal implications. She told us some fabulous stories from her solved cases.
Mary Holcomb and her committee coordinated the pot luck items and the food was delicious and abundant.... Diane Boyd brought four dozen Krispy Kreme donuts!! Many wanted the recipes and Mary will coordinate this project.......... send your recipe to her at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Folks came from Anchorage, Alaska (she is moving here), Colville, Athol, Ritzville, Deer Park, and Sandpoint. Those who made the effort to attend were richly rewarded.
