Genealogy Club - February 16

Our special speakers did a great job this week. Louise Kant and Terri Yates, with the help of Power Point assistant Patty Foley, each told the story of their search for their birth parents. Louise was able to access her birth record after Illinois opened up records created before 1946, which led to discovering two sisters and other relatives. Terri searched in North Carolina and through an "angel" at the local library found that there were records if you knew where to look! She has met her mother and will be seeing her father this spring.

Louise has been our long-time "cookie baker" for our annual treat night, and she not only spoke this week but brought her usual delicious cookies.

It was wonderful that we had such a large group in attendance for this meeting, as their stories were so compelling.

Congratulations to door prize winners Anne, Lois, Terri and Deenie!
