Time Travel for Genealogists
Saturday, March 6
Time Travel for Genealogists  (Meetings)
10:00 am
The U.S. Department of Time Travel is giving genealogists the chance to do what we once only dreamt of - to go back in time and interview our ancestors. However, your 21st century casualwear and debit card won't cut it in the past. This fanciful program, presented by Auriette Lindsey, will help you look the part, find your way, and pay for lunch without standing out. Those details will give you a better understanding of your ancestors' lives, even without a time machine.
This virtual meeting will be held online using Zoom. Register here.
