Please Join Us.

Presented by

Patti Gillespie -

"Brick Wall Busting Strategies: Hammering at the Wall"

This is a fun presentation with strategies, sources and a variety of documents that just might hammer down that frustrating brick wall. Examples of brick walls broken down are demonstrated by using vital records, military records, census, prison, land records, newspapers, passenger manifests and divorce records including a complicated story tracking a woman whose name changed 3 times in public records. 

An avid hobby genealogist for 30 years, and popular speaker, Patti Gillespie has her own research company called Family Lines & Stories. Patti is currently the President of the Lone Star Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists.

If possible please join us for a casual dinner at Spoons in downtown McKinney.  We meet at 5:00pm for a light dinner, visit and then go to the library just 3 blocks away.  If you are not able to join us for dinner we hope to see you at the Library at 6:45 for the meeting.
