Jackie is the Family Living Educator from the UW Madison, Division of Extension. Jackie will give a step-by-step guide to passing on our possessions and family treasures (such as your genealogical research!). Come and join us! The business meeting will follow.

Also, new this year! After the business meeting, a question and answer period will take place for those members who want to stay and do some research. This should be a great opportunity for both seasoned and new members alike.

12/21/2019 “BLACK SHEEP, HEROES & SCOUNDRELS!”
The saying goes, if you’re easily embarrassed or afraid of what you’ll find, don’t start doing genealogy. Because eventually, you will find all manner of relatives — black sheep, heroes, villains, successes, failures, role models, and scoundrels.

      DATE: Saturday, December 21, 2019
      TIME: 9:30 am
      WHERE: All-Purpose Room, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

Almost every family has one of these. Even though some of your ancestors might be embarrassing, especially to the generation who knew him, let us know who your heroes and scoundrels are. These characters can be the most interesting of our ancestors. Will a Salem Witch make an appearance? Come and join us! The business meeting will follow.

Also, new this year! After the business meeting, a question and answer period will take place for those members who want to stay and do some research. This should be a great opportunity for both seasoned and new members alike.
