Genealogy Workshop in Ava August 26

Carl Neiman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution is sponsoring a Genealogy Research Workshop at the Ozark Mountains Real Estate Training Room on Saturday, Aug. 26. The training room is located at 608 Springfield Road, Ste #2, and the workshop will run from 9:30 a.m. to 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 assistant Mary Bess Green are trained in the process of documenting genealogical history.
Ms. Wyman notes, “Research, particularly genealogy, is very popular right now, but can be overwhelming to those starting out. Even experienced researchers occasionally find themselves needing a ‘refresher’ to help them with a specific problem. The day-long workshop covers seven different topics, including organization, free on-line sites, and breaking through brick walls.”
The workshop will consist of both presentations and hands-on projects, with experienced researchers available to answer questions. Each presentation will have slide handouts and worksheets/blank forms. Participants will learn to complete pedigree charts and group sheets, review examples of organization, receive on-line procedures in their handouts, and more.
Each person is 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. Computers are not needed for the workshop.
Refreshments will be provided; however, individuals must bring a brown-bag lunch.
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.
