Vicki’s Note – here is a free, nearby genealogy educational opportunity that I just found out about. I have been to their events before, but have other plans already, or I would go:
Saturday, September 17, 2016
8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Gateway Technical College
Kenosha, WI 53140
Kenosha County Genealogy Society (KCGS), and co-hosts Burlington (Racine County) and Walworth County Genealogical Societies invite you to our yearly Family History Genealogy Fair.
This is a FREE community event with FREE parking.
Other area libraries, historical and genealogical societies will also be represented, including Wisconsin Veterans Museum, Chicago Newberry Library, Union Grove History Seekers, Lake Geneva’s Black Pointe Estate and Gardens, UofW-Parkside Archives and Research Center, Kenosha Public Library, Racine Public Library and Daughters of the American Revolution to name but a few.
We will also provide 1-on-1 sessions with seasoned genealogists to assist beginning genealogists as well as those who have hit a “brick wall” in their research.
Since we do not charge admission to this event, we offer wonderful door prizes and raffle items throughout the day as a means of covering our costs.
