#FxGS 2016 Spring Conference: Will you spot Cousin Russ' hat?

 

DearREADERS,
In true 21st century style, Cousin Russ will appear in person while DearMYRTLE appears virtually as we present a track of four classes on Friday, 1 April 2016 at the Fairfax Genealogical Society's annual Spring Fair. We will be using Google+ Hangouts On Air for these presentations. Times listed below are in the US Eastern - New York time zone.


Sure, it's April Fools Day, but we've got some great ideas to blast through your genealogical brick walls and update your "current thinking."

Virtual attendees may click on the above referenced class titles, to view the video on YouTube. Alternately, Members of DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community may view AND comment here:  http://bit.ly/DearMYRTLEonGooglePlus Only paid attendees of the FxGS Conference may have access to the handouts for these sessions.
