Genealogy Meeting Golden Wheat Chapter AHSGR

Participants to the Genealogy Roadshow Workshop were greeted by Ella's welcoming smile.

Our Golden Wheat Chapter President, Karen Penner, introduced Mike Meisinger.

The workshop began with the history of Germans from Russia.

A nice size group just right for our library room.

As always there were delicious snacks to boost brainpower.

There were breaks between presentations to socialize...

...share information...

...ask question...

...and check out the displays.

Mike's second presentation was on doing the actual research, what is available online and how to access it.

After lunch Mike shared with us slides of his trip to Russia. Then Dennis gave an overview of the creation of AHSGR and the history of the Golden Wheat Chapter.

Karen, our Golden Wheat Chapter librarian shared the holdings, resources of the chapter library.

Members of the chapter can check out books at no charge. 

Non-members may contact Karen to arrange access to books at the library.

It was a very informative workshop. Lots of questions and answers.

Videos of the presentations are being made. Info TBA.
