"Who's Your Momma?"

This session will have you participating in solving a genealogy problem, actually numerous problems. Come join in the mayhem and hilarity of genealogy miss-steps, AND help solve these challenges.

You will all be doing practical, hands-on, interactive research during the session - no electronics necessary, but bring your reading glasses! Along the way you will learn valuable skills that will send you home equipped with new abilities, and anxious to find details previously hidden from you.

This session is perfect for beginners, those with brick-walls and even the advanced. No matter where your ancestors came from, you *do* need these skills. Be prepared to share in laughter and perhaps even a couple tears.
