What I Wish I Knew When I First Started Genealogy  (Monthly Meetings)
6:30 pm
Downtown Farmington Library - 23500 Liberty St, Farmington MI 48335
Presented by Grace Wilfong.
New people to genealogy or even people who have done it for a while can benefit from the mistakes I and others have made or things that would have made our genealogy research and tree better.  Some of these things weren’t available when we started but many are accumulated hints based on years of doing genealogy and helping others do theirs.  Many of these hints will help you be more organized and will save you time in the long-run.
