I got a call a few days ago from a friend who asked if I like to join her tonight at the local book store and talk genealogy. Well how could a genealogist say no to an evening of talking about genealogy! I said yes. I am so glad I did. There were four of us there tonight. We all go to the same church and had a fun evening talking and sharing how we all got into genealogy and what some of our goals for our own research were. We've decided to make this a regular group and meet once a month. We haven't come up with a name yet or what our groups mission might be but those things will come about in time. Tonight was the beginning. We have set a date to meet again and one of our members who by the way is also a descendant of John Holland of the Mayflower like me, is even going to prepare a little something to share with us. How exciting to be in on the beginning of such a great group. I look forward to seeing us grow and flourish.
Until next time, happy hunting!
