Have You Found the “Schatz” in Your Family Tree?

The process of seeking and finding a “schatz” in your genealogy research can be both very rewarding and frustrating at the same time. This presentation will provide two different paths on how to narrow your research and focus on what you can find versus what you cannot find doing remote research.

Speakers: Cindy Foreman & Beverly Herring
