Presentation Description:
Genealogical research involves using many sources.  Many are commonly known and covered in books and lectures, but others can be surprising and could help with your own research.    Join us on Wednesday, June 5 at 7:00PM at the OWASA Community Center, 400 Jones Ferry Rd, Carrboro to hear D-OGS member Ann Myhre discuss her research into her Quaker 4th great grandfather Daniel Bills, and tell how he this made his mark on the world and the sources that surprised her.
Speaker Biography: 
Long-time D-OGS member Ann Myhre began writing about her family in the 8th grade. She has two degrees in Biology from East Tennessee State University and a BS in Science Education from NCSU. History was not on her list of priorities until about 1998, when her mother-in-law died and left piles of genealogical material from both sides of her husband's family.  Since then she's worked on both families, including research in several US states and in libraries in Norway and Ulster. She is a member of three lineage societies and numerous other societies covering areas of interest.
The OWASA Community Center is on the right side of Jones Ferry Road
heading west out of town.  Park in the lower lot on the west side of the
facility - the center is the door closest to the street on the lower level.
