Workshops by Kim Morgan Upcoming in Hayden, Idaho

Upcoming Workshops We will meet at Hayden Library through June and then take a summer break.
Saturday, April 301:00-3:00 p.m. Finding Ancestors We Didn't Know We Had
  • You may not find a paper trail leading to an elusive family member. Ancestors who live​d in counties where courthouses burned down may have had important land records destroyed with the courthouse. Some ancestors were just clannish people and distrusted the government, or purposefully disappeared from relatives. There are many reasons why no records exist for an ancestor. You can find your ancestor and something of his or her life and family. Get creative with those private or record-less ancestors. You got this!

  • A free writing class presented by Kim Morgan. The saga of migration from the Old World to New World, tends to be the most dramatic and momentous chapter in American family history. You have researched that story for at least some of your immigrant ancestors and discovered many other stories about your family’s past as well. Now it’s time to share them!
Please keep in touch and feel free to forward this message to friends. I'd love to hear about your current genealogy project. As always I look forward to seeing you soon.

Your Friend,

Kim E. Morgan
