Next Meeting April 24: Genealogy Free or Fee

Marian_WoodThe Southington Genealogical Society is pleased to sponsor a program entitled “Genealogy: Free or Fee?” with Marian Wood on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 7:30 pm at The Orchards, 34 Hobart St in Southington, CT.

Genealogy, Free or Fee? Frugal Research Strategies: Birth, marriage, death, naturalization records can be costly. Refine your research strategy by going beyond the well-known sites to free and low-cost sources via Linkpendium, historical and genealogical societies, courthouses, libraries, and more. Decide when to pay for a record, based on timeliness, the details in the record, and the uniqueness of the record.

Marian Wood is a textbook author, an avid genealogy researcher for 20 years, and a frequent speaker at genealogy conferences and clubs. With a B.A. from City University of New York and an M.B.A. from Long Island University, she is also the author of a popular genealogy book, “Planning a Future for Your Family’s Past.”

There will be an opportunity for questions and answers.

The meeting will be held at The Orchards at Southington in their second floor community room at 7:30 pm. There is no admission charge and no obligation to become a member. No reservations are necessary. The facility is handicapped accessible with an elevator.
