What You Missed March 4, 2017 EWGS Meeting

March is Women's History Month and so our topic was Finding Women Ancestors by Kim E. Morgan.
Kim is an author and here she is holding her book.
She started out with three people from the audience playing  To Tell The Truth, where each lady said she was Nancy Jane Justice, and each had references to prove that she was the real Nancy Jane Justice. And after several questions and even having her husband trying to tell the correct Nancy Jane Justice proof came from the probate of her father, and it turned out all three ladies were Nancy Jane Justice even though the sources seemed to make a case that there was three different ladies.

Andrew Chanse the Library director also came to inform us about the upcoming Library Levi that will be on the April 25th ballot extending the Library Levi for seven years this time at the same rate as it has been for three years. He told that it has helped keep the East Central, Hillyard and Indian Trail libraries open 8 hours a day 5 days a week, and that if the levi fails the library board might have to cut the hours at these three branches or even close a branch. So if you are a city resident please support the library levi.
Andrew Chanse and EWGS President Pat Bayonne-Johnson
