How the Genealogy Community Benefits from the LDS Beliefs about Family  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am
North Kansas City Library, 2251 Howell St., NKC, MO 64116
The LDS church offers many genealogical resources free to everyone.  Do you know what they are?  Are you currently using them?  If not, why?  This class will introduce you to these resources and very briefly mention the beliefs that prompt the LDS to research their ancestors.

Beginning Mistakes  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
North Kansas City Library, 2251 Howell St., NKC, MO 64116
Beginning Mistakes
Beth Foulk
We all know that awful feeling of “ugh!” when we’ve wasted our time, messed up the tree, or found a better, faster way to the results we wanted. This class outlines – with personal examples – many mistakes that you can now avoid. Laugh, learn, and love the new ideas you’ll come away with knowing how to more effectively build your family tree

From her website, Beth writes, "Genealogy is more than collecting records, dates, and places of our ancestors. It’s about understanding the lives of the people whose choices shaped our lives in the most personal ways. It’s about knowing ourselves through the people who came before us.

I get excited about learning their stories and helping others with their own family history journey. I enjoy the road of discovery. I relish in sharing that experience with fellow searchers."

An Adoptee Journey thru DNA for TRUTH  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am
North Kansas City Library, 2251 Howell St., NKC, MO 64116
This presentation will give an overview of being adopted and the yearning for TRUTH.  Born in 1943 at an Unwed Mother's Home and not relinquished for 15 days, I will recreate the circumstances, best as I can.  I live and learn daily the many facets of how I was affected..Please join me on my travels.
Carolyn Pooler: "Always knowing I would one day find the TRUTH, I raised my family, finding bits and pieces along the way. Attending the first discussion/support group in 1995, I knew then I would go on to start them myself.  I eventually learned about DNA and the ways it might help someone like me,  I completed the 23 and Me in 2011, FTDNA in 2013 and finally Ancestry in 2015.  This is my journey."

Capture History Now  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
North Kansas City Library, 2251 Howell St., NKC, MO 64116
Capture History Now
Beth Foulk
As genealogists we zero in on finding the wonderful treasures of our past – as we should. However, we often neglect capturing the family history being created now, in the 21st Century. We forget that our current events are our children’s family history. Break open the can of “memory catcher” and learn how to save today for tomorrow.
Beth discovered her love of genealogy through her father, who built a 115-name family tree with every family member’s name he knew. While Beth continues to research her family, she shares her knowledge through lectures, articles, her blog, and one-on-one assistance. She particularly enjoys speaking at regional conferences.
