"Beginning Genealogical Research for the Year of the Veteran"

This meeting doubles as a kickoff for the Genealogy Classes to be held at the Pine Plains Free Library (future class dates and times to be announced). This first class will cover beginning genealogy including finding and researching your veteran ancestors, with a special focus on World War I.

We will have time for questions and socialization. Come out and meet your fellow ancestry sleuths! Light refreshments will be served.

New and existing members of the DCGS who register in advance for this meeting will receive a binder for class handouts with tips and sources.

The presenter for November 10 will be Valerie LaRobardier, DCGS President, Town of Dover Co-Historian and professional genealogist.
