On Saturday, Aug. 26, the Carl Neiman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution will sponsor a “Genealogy Research Workshop” at the Ozark Mountains Real Estate Training Room located at 608 Springfield Road, Suite 2. The workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m., and conclude at 3:30 p.m.
The workshop will be presented by Leslie Wyman, Managing Director of the White River Valley Historical Society, Taney County. Wyman and her assistant, Mary Bess Green, are trained in the process of documenting genealogical history.
Instructional presentations will primarily consist of topics ranging from organization to planning a research trip, to breaking through “brick walls.” Participants will also begin compiling charts and data sheets on their own ancestors, as well as historical subjects of interest.
Handouts of each presentation will be provided, along with work-sheets and blank forms.
Participants are asked to bring the names, approximate birth/death dates of parents or grandparents (siblings if known) for genealogical research or local historical interest for general research projects. A computer is not needed.
Please bring a brown-bag lunch for the noon meal; refreshments will be provided.
The workshop is free, but advance registration is required due to space limitations.
To register, please call Sandra Walker at (417) 683-5130, and leave a message, if necessary.
