My two accomplishments for this week are: I have found two wills from men named Jacob Bowser. All I have to do is head to Kittanning and look at their wills. But, I have become wiser and will call first. I am glad it is only a forty five minute drive.
Second was today I went to monthly meeting of the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society. Today was a presentation by Debbie Kapp who talked about Exploring the New Family Search.org. I have always had trouble using the Family Search web site. She covered four main places to search and explained the fine details of the web design. There were a lot of things I did not know or perhaps missed. I am now excited to go about their site and see what I can find.
I had a feeling of disappointment when some book I would be interested in was located in the LDS Library in Salt Lake. Debbie said that a lot of the same books are in other Libraries or genealogical societies. I have to search more on that subject. I should have deduced that myself, but now I know.
