EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED

 

 

KVGS is grateful for an opportunity to share the activities of neighboring libraries and genealogical societies, especially when KVGS VP/Program Chair Jim Jackson is their special presenter! 

 

Putting It All Together

 

Follow the Laura Ingalls Wilder family through their travels “out west” and examine the many records that were generated and left along the way, just like the records for your own family were. Ideal for those new to their genealogical quest and those already familiar with finding ancestral records and research techniques. Presented by Jim Jackson.
