One thought on “2018 Meeting Schedule

  1. I am interested in researching more of my family tree. Is your group a place to start? Is research available at the Family History Center? Are there only certain days/times that one can use the Center? Thank you for any information to help me continue research. Kirbie Moore [Note: telephone number removed by webmaster]
