The June research class How Do You Know That...? will be presented by genealogist Linda Serna. You may not have noticed all the great information in census records, especially the earliest ones. How Do You Know That...? describes how to find that information, and where to go from there.

After the research class will be a brief business meeting at 1:00 PM, followed by some tasty snacks and time for chatting with other members. Don't miss the drawings for some excellent prizes!

Ms. Serna will then present the main program, Genealogy as Detective Work. This presentation highlights the skills used by both detectives and genealogists to solve mysteries. It explores how to reason through a genealogical challenge by using a detective's tools and indirect evidence. Specific examples and case studies will illustrate how to find and analyze information that can solve your difficult family mysteries and brick walls.
