Scott County Iowa Genealogical Society: Genealogy Bring and Share with Mike Thomas Online

Scott County Iowa Genealogical Society and the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center of the Davenport Public Library invite you to their monthly meeting.

Do you have an interesting ancestor you’d love to tell others about?  What about an object that holds a memory of a special ancestor?  Or, have you found a great website you think others would want to know about?  Do you have a story about a brick wall you’ve gotten over? Is there a great genealogy search tip you can share?

During the meeting, we’ll spend a brief time looking at some of the ways to share a story about an ancestor or about a memento. Then we’ll give you some time to organize your thoughts, and maybe jot down some ideas.  Finally, we’ll spend time taking turns and sharing about that ancestor, their possession, or the genealogy research tip you have; one person, object, or tip at a time.  If people have more than one thing to share, we will go around as many times as the meeting hour allows.  Feel free to bring an object or a photo of the ancestor you plan to share. Of course, you are welcome to come and observe even if you don’t wish to share.

This program is scheduled to be held in person and virtually.

This program is suitable for adults and teens.
