GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY MEETING
Where do I find information on past relatives? What websites do I use? If you have similar questions, the Bartlesville Genealogical Society is having its regular monthly meeting on Monday evening, March 9, in the Bartlesville Public Library’s upstairs meeting room (Conference Room A). The public is invited.
The Beginner’s Corner will begin at 6:00 pm and the Genealogical Society will continue a six-month study of beginning genealogical research. For this month, Rita Bibles will discuss “Milking a Census Record”.
During the 6:30 pm Early Session, the Society will hear from a guest speaker, Nancy Shively. Ms. Shively will discuss “What is Pinterest and How to Use Pinterest for Genealogy”.
Ms Shively is a native Oklahoman who became interested in genealogy when a casual search on Ancestry.com led to finding her 83-year-old father's birth family. Thoroughly hooked after that, she went on to write the Family Tree Firsts blog for Family Tree Magazine and to serve three years as an official blogger for the RootsTech genealogy conference in Salt Lake City. She lives near Skiatook and continues to research and write about dead ancestors on her blog.
At 7:00 pm Ms. Shively will continue her presentation, telling how she became a genealogy blogger and will share her story of genealogical research. She says, “You can’t make this stuff up”, and will share the amazing healing power of genealogy.
All meetings and classes are a service of the Bartlesville Genealogical Society and are free and open to anyone interested in beginning or continuing their family research. Information discussed will assist not only beginners, but experienced genealogists will find useful tips in continuing family research.
ASK A GENEALOGIST DAY
Experienced genealogists will be available on Saturday, March 21, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Local and Family History Room of the Bartlesville Public Library. These genealogists will guide you in beginning family research or will make suggestions to further your research. This assistance is a free service provided by the Bartlesville Genealogical Society.
