7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The program at the Eastside Genealogical Society meeting will be "Descendancy Research: Gathering Your Family Forwards and Backwards" with Celia McNay. Descendancy research involves moving forward in time on your family tree instead of further back in the generations. Why would you do this? To assemble a more complete picture of your ancestors, their immediate relatives, and their impact today. As you move forward in time, you will be researching in the ‘paper’ era of records, thus opening more records to your searches. It will also allow you to find collateral lines to use in the push back in time.
Everyone is welcome, and we hope you will join us! For more information about EGS, visit our website at eastsidegenealogicalsociety.org
