Golden Wheat AHSGR April 18, 2010 Genealogy Meeting

Most of our Golden Wheat Chapter AHSGR meetings begin with sharing lots of good food. More often than not there were be several ethnic dishes. This meeting a member brought a crock of Bohne Beroggi (another recipe) that was delicious, just to name one of the ethnic foods.

The bulletin board had copies of other chapter newsletters...

...and two tables full of random books and information from our library, some of the most used resources for researching G/R ancestors.

Dennis made a wonderful stand for our banner so it can be beautifully displayed whenever we gather for meetings or events. We applaud your creativeness, Dennis.

Harold led us in a couple of German songs, something we plan on doing every meeting.

Then various members came up to the podium to share their "Elektra!" moments in doing their research. Something that broke down a wall or caused information to finally make sense. These testimonies give hope to others that their "Elektra!" moment could be in the turn of a page.

Then Karen shared with us the recent troubles with our Clues publication and the necessity to fill out our family forms and send them to headquarters so we will all get properly published in the next publication.

Next was Dennis' turn to give his presentation on the SOAR program. This is an online searchable database. Information is constantly being added. To find out more click the link above.
The last event was to draw the winner of a painting donated by Jerry Calkins as a fund raiser. Congratulations Joel!

Another GREAT meeting!
