7:00 pm
Zula B. Wylie Public Library, 225 Cedar St., Cedar Hill, TX 75104
We all have them — the ancestor, aunt, uncle or cousin we tell great stories about. They are often famous, infamous, heroes ... or not so much. You know, the ones everyone brags about or the ones the aunties stop talking about when the kids get too close.
At the June meeting, CHGS members will tell us all about a relative that they found interesting and how they discovered the facts and determined how much of the stories are true. We’ll also talk about the ones WE discovered during our research and how to discover a fantastic ancestor.
