The Klamath Basin Genealogical Society is hosting their annual all-day genealogy seminar at the downtown Klamath County Library on Saturday, September 15th. Doors open at 9 am; the first workshop starts at 9:30 am.
The Society’s guest speakers this year are professional genealogists Susan Le Blanc and Patricia Oberndorf. They have a combined 80 years of amateur and professional family history research experience.
Workshop topics include researching ancestors in New England, tracking the migration of various populations throughout America, how to glean useful information from Civil War records, and tips to organize your research. Seminar organizers have also planned some door-prize giveaways throughout the day.
Space is limited, so registration is required. Registration forms are available at the Information and Reference desk at the downtown library or by using the contact information below. Registration fees for the day are $25 for Society members and $35 for non-members. Workshop organizers will email participants handouts and other materials before the event, so it’s important to include your email address when you register.
The Klamath Basin Genealogical Society meets twice monthly at the downtown library. The Society’s DNA-research-focused special interest group meets on the first Thursday of the month at 6 pm; the full Society meets the second Thursday at 6 pm. (While the DNA Interest Group will meet on Thursday, September 6th, there is no general Society meeting this month in order to focus on the all-day workshop.)
