Family History Night - Friday, March 14th @ 6:00 pm

Just a reminder to mark your calendars and invite your friends and neighbors to our Family History Night on Friday, March 14th at 6:00 pm. This will be an adults-only, informal affair designed to introduce a few tools, share stories, and get people interested in the richly rewarding work of family history. In order to bribe the lesser motivated among us, we will have light hors d'oeuvres (smoked brisket) and some delicious dessert. It will be well worth your time.
