Dear TCGS Members and Guests:
Note that our own TCGS member, Connie Estep will be a co-presenter tomorrow night on:
Dupus Boomer’s Prefabulous Richland
Thursday, December 21st at 7:00 p.m. at the Richland Public Library
“What happens when you take a secret WWII project, add a booming population, and build a city in the desert? You have to ask Dupus Boomer all about the Prefabulous Richland. Join Terry and Connie as they use Dupus (a blue-collar Dilbert of the 1940s) to introduce the people and the places of the atomic pioneers in Richland, WA.”
Whenever you start researching an individual or family one of the most helpful things to do is make a timeline, or chronology, for them. By creating an outline of what you know you can gain ideas of where to search for the additional information you need and identify conflicts with the information you already have. Timelines are especially useful with families that have not lived in the same place…

Hello TCGS Members and Guests:
Would you like to highlight and display something about your ancestral history?
Would you like to display a collection that you inherited from one of your ancestors?
Would you like to display an heirloom, antique or vintage item that was handed down from your ancestors?
Would you like to display a personal hobby or a collection you had from the past or currently engaged in?
If so, this is what our December 13th meeting will be all about. We want you to share with us via photographs, documents and a display of family anitques/heirlooms and hobbies and collections. Hobbies and collections of the past are very much part of your ancestral legacy, but your personal past/current hobbies and collections will also become a family legacy to your descendants.
Please consider what you would like to bring to this meeting to display. This will be fun to get to know more about you or your ancestors.
Also, we are asking each of you to bring either homemade or store bought Christmas cookies, candies, fudge, muffins, or breads (banana, zucchini, apple, pumpkin, etc.) to share with one another.
If you have any questions about what to bring, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for supporting TCGS.

With the end of the year comes opportunities to gather together generations of family. Why not take advantage of that to share with your living family the people who came before them? Remember to keep your ideas simple and brief to not overwhelm family members with too much information. Pick out little pieces of interesting information to share and don’t explain distant relationships in detail because most won’t be able to follow you…
