Greater Omaha Genealogical Society's meeting, 7 PM, Crown Point retirement center.
Brave the cold and join us. (Membership not required to attend the meeting.

Saturday, 16 Feb, the second of this year's annual genealogy series will be
held here in Omaha at the Mormon Trail Center, sponsored by Greater Omaha
Genealogical Society and Omaha Public Library.
The class this week is Vital Records for the Vital Events of our Lives and
Substitutes for Vital Records.
The first part will discuss the vital records that the government keeps
(birth, marriage, death) and how to find them; and the second part goes into
substitutes for vital records (where to go to obtain the same information when
the government entity did not keep vital records). Since most US states only
started keeping vital records in the early 20th century (marriage records do
usually start earlier), it's not long before we run out of vital records and
need to look to other sources for our family information.
If you attended the class in January, you do not need to re-register. If
you did not come to the class in January, we would appreciate a phone call
(706-1453) or an email (_Genclass(a)aol.com_ (mailto:Genclass@aol.com) ), so we know
how many handouts to prepare. You don't need to have attended the first
class to come to one or all of the rest of the classes.
The class runs from 9 until about noon. There are some samples of the
different records so that you can get an idea of what some of them might look
like, as well as hints for locating the records, and where to go when you can't
find the things you need. There are always several members of the Greater
Omaha Genealogy Society staffing the classes, so you can ask questions in class,
during the break, or after class.
Hope to see some of you there. We usually have a lot of fun, and three
people at the last class connected with relatives.
