FAN Club

Are you a member of a FAN Club? The FAN Club (Friends, Associates and Neighbors) was coined by Elizabeth Shown Mills as a way to search those who ‘clustered’ around your ancestor. Learning more about an ancestor’s FAN Club is a great way to discover new information about your direct ancestry, as these people are often listed together in deeds, wills, newspaper articles, church records and more.

The public is invited to attend this FREE presentation at the Jefferson County Genealogical Society (JCGS) on Saturday, February 16, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. at the Tri Area Community Center, 10 W. Valley Rd, Chimacum. Donations are welcomed and appreciated.

Our presenter, Diane Young, is a member of JCGS, has a B.A. and M.S. in Business. She taught at the college and university levels for over 30 years. She has been working on her own Swedish and Czech ancestry and her husband’s Scottish ancestry for over 40 years.
