Summer Report

Join us as we share our summer discoveries and projects.  Maybe you found a great new (or new to you!) website or resource.  We'll reintroduce ourselves and our areas of research.  This is a great opportunity for non-members to learn about WGS and get some help.

"Writing Family History Quickly -- Fast Ways to Get Your Family History Written Quickly" with Susie Wickman

One of the most requested lecture topics by WGS members was how to write a family history - and we've found just the person to help!  Susie is a popular speaker, with recent engagements with various genealogy societies in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska.  Join us for this virtual presentation and get inspired to finally do that writing!

From Susie's biography - "Originally from North Dakota, I’ve called Colorado home for over 30 years. I began my interest in genealogy when I received the box of pictures after my parents died, in 2002. I’m passionate about genealogy and have been giving genealogy presentations since 2017.  I also share ways to help write and map family history on my blog www.genealogyjourney.net. I feel that it is the stories that are going to be important to get our children and grandchildren interested in their family history, so I want to help you tell your stories."
