Participation in any (OR ALL) workshops/refreshers is free to members, $5 for non-members (which includes membership). Our open house Sundays begin with a Research Review and Refresher - each month we feature a review of research techniques or materials. Bring your lap-top (we have wi-fi) or use one of our internet-connected computers.  During the Sunday meetings, we are on-line for those members who cannot join us on-site.  There will be plenty of people on-hand to assist with research questions.

  1. One of the first trees I helped someone start was a woman who was trying to prove her Jewish lineage for her Rabbi. I was able to locate a Census record for a maternal grandparent who came from Russia, it listed the grandparents religion as Jewish. That was all she needed for her Rabbi to admit her. If you have questions drop by and drop me a message. http://fiverr.com/tn5rr2012
