2022 GENEALOGY CLUB BOOT CAMP
Are you new to genealogy? Starting in May, per popular request, we are once again presenting a Genealogy Boot Camp to our Club Members. It will focus on the basics and will be geared to the beginning genealogist.
Boot Camp 2022 will consist of seven teaching sessions, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the first Monday of the month (June 27 is the only exception). All sessions will be in the Fine Arts Room at Orchard Creek. Class size will be limited to 30.
Members can audit individual classes if unable to commit to the entire program.
Carole Moore, Bob Ringo, and Bill Kress will be the presenters.
