3rd Genealogy session
We will again have a 3rd genealogical special session at the Church on Sat, Aug 9th from 10 am to 3pm. All interested cousins are urged to participate and bring their family history files and photographs for exchange. Participants bringing their own lap top or an USB external data storage device will be able to simply electronically transfer available family genealogical data to their equipment. A scanner and copy capability will be available for limited use. A limited number of data CDs will be available for a donation to the Graybeal Reunion Fund. The 2006 and 2007 genealogy sessions were very well attended and family history files and photographs were exchanged.
I look forward to seeing you’al. Come for both days if you can.
President, Graybeal Reunion Group
