Another Genies meeting is rolling around again next Monday 7/15. Same time, same location. 1:00 meeting start at the Ferndale Library.
This time of year, typically none of the Genealogical Societies are meeting but the Genies are keeping at it. You might ask what I have been doing this summer. I’m doing a cycle of the Research Like a Pro research process. It has given me a commitment to research in my dad’s colonial line. Our immigrant ancestor William Hearne was a merchant traveling back and forth between London and the New World. He and his wife were well-educated in London and settled in Maryland in the 1680’s or so. It’s written that they were disappointed that there was no education for their children who grew up illiterate in the backwoods of Maryland.
We have a pilot group using Research Like a Pro and I expect we will open a group in the fall sometimes known as a challenge. In the meantime, there is a book, a podcast and blog posts about the process at familylocket.com. If you’re new to Family Locket,nd wondering what is ll bout, you can ready Diana Elder’s original blog posts nd try it out for yourself!
