Heads Up: There are some really interesting learning opportunities happening soon!

We are grateful for our Genealogy Friends! It took an email trail of several people for these great opportunities to reach my desk so that I could share with you. Thanks to Richard Ellington of the Durham-Orange Genealogy Society for starting that chain.
