June Evening Meeting Announcement
Our evening meeting is fast approaching because the third Thursday comes early this monthJ Be sure to mark your calendars so you don’t miss out!
Join us on Thursday, June 16, 2011 at 7:00 pm at the Gail Borden Public Library. Joyce Nigbor will be presenting The Power of Yes - Tracking down a Norwegian family in Minnesota. Joyce will speak on the problems in tracking down a Norwegian family living in Minnesota 130 years ago and finally finding living relatives.
A friend in Oslo, Norway had requested Nigbor's assistance. The search includes a variety of documents, people, and websites as Nigbor pursued four sisters, their spouses and children from Norway to Territorial Minnesota to today. You may not have Norwegian ancestors, but come hear the research methods she used. They may help you. See our website for other info at www.elginroots.com.
