Colonial America Genealogy  (MCGS Monthly Meeting)
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Meeting location to be announced.
Presenter: Beth Foulk, Genealogy Decoded
Beth Foulk has turned a lifetime genealogy passion into an opportunity to share what she’s learned with genealogists across the country.  She has documented her Civil War, War of 1812, and Revolutionary War ancestors, mapped the migration of her Kansas and Missouri pioneers, and researched the arrival of her many Massachusetts Colonial settlers.  Each ancestor and each story quickly become a “teaching moment” for her classes.
“The only thing more fun than a genealogy find, is sharing what I’ve learned to help other genealogists.”
Beth has been “spreading the genealogy gospel” since 2008 when she first taught as a volunteer at the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri.
