Topic: Seek the Extraordinary: Family History Blogging
Speaker: George Thomas

Why confine your family story to brief snipits presented by way of the single-lined fields commonly used in genealogy based software? Instead, take time to honor the fact that your uniquely personal history has real connections to extraordinary happenings playing out on the world scene. From the desires of Lord Hyde, the head of a French Queen, and the real brains behind the Confederate States of America …to life in Venice, the Houston shipping harbor, and the gold fields of North Carolina; the happen chances of a kitty cat, a Jewish neighbor, and the boy next door have vastly changed the way George perceives his family’s history. Enjoy this evening of storytelling as George Thomas presents recently embraced twists in his own family story he discovered using ordinary sources.

All WCGS meetings are free and open to the public. Bring a friend! Refreshments will be served during social time before the presentation. Presentation will start at 7pm.
