For the Locals: Free Genealogy Workshop!

I must admit, I love studying genealogy. It doesn't matter if it is mine or someone else's, and the more scandalous the better. It's like a treasure hunt for clues. One of the most interesting lines that I worked on for someone else traced this lady's genealogy all the way back to the boy who almost sank the Mayflower before it even left port in England. The child shot off his father's musket in the Mayflower's cabin, showering sparks around open barrels of gunpowder, nearly causing a catastrophe. Now that is interesting!

If you have an interest in learning about genealogy, you should take advantage of this free seminar.
