Are you up against a genealogical “brick wall?” Often in our family history research we create our own brick walls because of the things we do not know or do not know how to find. Sometimes the information, or at least clues to the information, is staring us in the face and we simply miss it! While many of us are still limiting our in-person interactions with others, the officers of COGS thought it would be a good time to collaborate virtually to help each other work through our research challenges. We encourage you to submit details for one of your brick walls using the Google form sent to our mailing list. Your submission will be reviewed by COGS members who will suggest a research strategy to help you move forward with your research.
Zoom Meeting: Saturday, April 17, 2021 | 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. EDT
Selected brick wall problems will be discussed and a basic resource list will be created during the April 17 program, so everyone can benefit from identified strategies and might be able to apply these to their own genealogy research. After the problems submitted in advance have been addressed, we will use the remaining time to consider additional problems from attendees.
Don’t miss this opportunity to have others help you climb over your brick wall! Registration is required for this free program hosted by the Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society. The registration link was sent via email to our mailing list. The deadline to register is Friday, April 16 at noon. The Zoom meeting link will be sent to registrants Friday afternoon once registration closes.
We look forward to seeing you on April 17 and learning more about your family history research!
