Upcoming HOWGS Programs and Events

04/20/2019 HOWGS -- “Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org -- What to Expect and Not to Expect!”
This program will be presented by Lori Bessler, Wisconsin Historical Society.

      DATE: Saturday, April 20, 2019
      TIME: 9:30 a.m.
      WHERE: All-Purpose Room at McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids

Lori has worked at the Wisconsin Historical Society Library Archives in Madison since 1988 and has lectured throughout the Midwest on genealogical topics for over 30 years. While these two popular websites contain many collections for genealogists, they both have pros and cons to them that genealogists don’t realize are there. Lori will also provide instruction on other places to go to find more about your ancestors. Join us for the Program. The business meeting will follow.
