Arlington Genealogical Society: Brick Wall Assistance  (Other Society/Organization)
6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
West Arlington Police Service Station, 2060 W Green Oaks Blvd, Arlington, TX 76013
AGS Friends, Visitors, and former Members
Our June meeting program will be a group participation exercise designed to help fellow members break through their brick walls.  The program will start with an example that occurred when an Arlington Public Library customer requested assistance with their brick wall.
Please complete the attached worksheet and return it to Steve Brown at sbrownpga@sbcglobal.net by June 5, 2018 so  he will have time to include it in the onscreen presentation to the group.  We will get to as many as brick walls as possible during the session.  If, for some reason, we are unable to get to everyone’s brick walls, Steve will take a look at them and provide ideas for research that may help solve the mystery.
