Olympia Genealogical Society  (Local society meetings)
7:00 pm
Thurston County Courthouse, Building 1, Room 152, Olympia
Olympia Genealogical Society’s December meeting will be “ DNA Redux.” Using DNA for genealogy is no longer the "new thing" and we should all have some knowledge about it. At our December 12 meeting, we will get a crash refresher course about DNA— what it is, how to test it and what it can, and can't, tell us about our ancestors. Our presenter is longtime OGS member, Carol Ballard, who also leads the genealogy and DNA efforts at Panorama. Please join us for our 7:00 pm meeting and presentation at Thurston County Courthouse, Building 1, Room 152. Info, 360-349-2493 or www.OlyGenSoc.org.

Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable  (Local society meetings)
8:00 pm
China Harbor, 2040 Westlake Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109
Michael Kirschner will discuss the mobilization of the Union Army by President Abraham Lincoln, Secretary of War Simon Cameron, and the Governors of the states in 1861.  Because President Buchanan and his cabinet had done very little to prepare the Union for war, and, in fact, took actions that helped arm the Southern states and hindered the Union, the Lincoln administration had to scramble under pressure immediately after Fort Sumter to field effective forces to defend Washington, the border states, and the Union.  A patent attorney, Mr. Kirschner is writing a book on the 2nd Wisconsin Infantry, following the discovery that his wife and daughter’s ancestor fought for the Union in that regiment and carried its colors at Gettysburg.
Social hour begins at 6:00 pm, Dinner at 6:30 pm, and program at 8:00 pm. Students may attend free with no dinner.  Make a reservation and choose a dinner.
