Upcoming conference here in Omaha Nebraska will be October 24th. We will
be talking about wills & probate records, Civil War pensions, have a panel
discussion to discuss some of the attendee's research problems (you have to
send in your problem with your registration and tell what you've done and
what you know about your problem for the panel to have half a chance at
figuring out further ways to help you), and have an Antiques Roadshow type of
event as well (so you can bring a family heirloom to find out more about it.)
Place: Again at the Nebraska Methodist College, Josie Harper campus.
Registration is in progress. If you did not get a flyer in the mail, you can
download one at _www.gogsmembers.wordpress.com_
(http://www.gogsmembers.wordpress.com) (look on the sidebar for the button to click). You'll want to

We introduced over 60 folks to the resources that are at the W. Dale Clark
Library, (had snacks, which are not commonly acceptable on 3rd floor), and
people had access to 14 computers there on 3rd, whereas the genealogy room
has two that usually can be used without reservations to do genealogy
research without reservations. There were people there from GO-PAF who helped
answer genealogy program & computer questions. It was generally decided that
we need to do another one, so we will, but not for a few months. Sorry if
you missed it...so don't miss the Workshop too!
