The 2015 Workshop and Review

Our 2015 Genealogy workshop was a wonderful success! We had about 74 people attend! There were 12 walk-ins, 3 new members joined and 2 membership renewals. Stephen Morse, our keynote speaker had wonderful reviews. All the sessions received positive comments at least once if not more in our evaluation comment forms. The biggest suggestion comment was to have repeating workshops since people missed out on one while they were attending another.

Lin and Marie would like to thank all the volunteers who helped out at the workshop. We would especially like to thank our workshop speakers and committee members who stepped in and committed to making our workshop a great success! We could not do this without all that help. Thank you to all the members who were able to attend.

Thank you to all our exhibitors for setting up displays for our attendees to visit during the lunch break. They are:

Tuolumne County Historical Society
IOOF adopt a grave project
Friends And Neighbors Tuolumne County Memorial Veterans Project
Writing your Story – Sylvia Roberts and Pat Perry
Calaveras County Genealogical Society

Please hold the date, October 8th, 2016, as our next year’s workshop date! Of course, if anyone wants to be part of preparing for next year’s workshop, please let Marie Tiraschi know as she will be setting up her committee after the holiday season is over.
