Renee kept the minutes and so this is her tale of the "Brick wall Round Table."  Everyone took part in it and had some very good suggestions as how to get over the wall and find new leads to your ancestry.

Also discussed was the society purchasing film of the Ship Passenger Lists.  Several ideas come out of the discussion, but not completed.  It is important that we do not purchase film that has already been placed on the internet, published in book form, or on film at another library close to our vicinity.

A fall genealogy workshop for beginners was discussed and will be completed under Dr Underwood's direction.

NOTED:  THE NEW YORK TIMES has made its archives from 1987 to present without charge as well as those from 1851 to 1922.  Its web site is www.nytimes,com and some of the material from 1923-1986 will be free, and there will be charges for some material from that period.  I found about the ship my great-grandfather arrived on because it was late arriving after sailing through one of the worst Atlantic storms at that time.
