I am relatively new to Genealogy meetings. I have attended two local meetings. One was on German research and writing given by JOHN HUMPHREY It was a two day course on German research and handwriting. This was sponsored by the WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY It gave me a lot of information and the handwriting section on the old German Scripts was excellent.
Tomorrow the meeting is featuring JOHN P COLLETTA PHD. This is an all day conference hosted by Tarentum Genealogical Society and in association with the Armstrong County Historical Society and the Oakmont Genealogical Study Group.
The four topics are Passenger Arrival Records, How to Prepare for Successful Research in European Records, Breaking Through Those Brick Walls, and Discovering Your Ancestors’ World thru Maps and Gazetteers.
I am really looking forward to this education meeting; it is an all day affair and only twenty minutes from my home.
Perhaps after I retire I can attend the weekly meeting that I read about and a lot of Bloggers attend.
