Each fall the society presents a Speaker Series, a one-day seminar focused on a specific topic. This single concentration provides a wonderful opportunity to hear a series of related presentations in detail, while also being able to share information with others interested in the same topic.

This year’s Fall Speaker Series will be held on Saturday, 20 October 2018, from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Our featured speaker will be noted author and lecturer, Lisa Louise Cooke, who will give four talks designed to help you learn more about the ways Google can help you with your genealogy:

        • Google Search Strategies for Common Surnames
        • Create a Free Google Map Collection for Your Research
        • Google Books: The Tool You Should Use Everyday
        • Reconstruct Your Ancestors’ World with Google
