Crafty Ways to Solve Genealogical Problems.
Have you hit the proverbial road block in your genealogical research? Is an ancestor or two eluding you? This workshop will help you learn crafty ways to succeed in finding new evidence and avoid common pitfalls. Learn some solid strategies and ways to take a fresh look at what you've tried and what else you can do to find those pesky hidden ancestors. Please feel free to bring a problem for us to discuss and to bring your lap top computer to class if you have one.

Carol McCoy's workshop, Crafty Ways to Solve Genealogical Problems, was a huge hit with my group. She showed us new strategies to find those lost relatives. The workshop was very informative and attendees are asking when she is coming back. One even spoke to a board member about what a great workshop it was! Thanks Carol. Can't wait to have you back.
