Family History – Fun and Foibles

Fernandina Beach Library 25 N 4th St, Fernandina Beach, FL
Come join us on 20 September 2022 at 7pm in the Community room at the Fernandina Beach Branch Library where Joel Warner will present his discussion topic of "Family History - Fun and Foibles." This presentation tackles some research problems from four different families. Warner's goal in this presentation is to use real cases he has worked on to demonstrate how perseverance and luck will often help research solve problems.  Some may take patience as more and more records become available.  But there is great satisfaction with connecting yourself to the real lives of the real family members who contributed to what and who you are.
