Where did your ancestors come from?
According to reports, between 250 and
275 individuals attended the all-day genealogy fair held
Saturday, March 1st, at the Southeast Regional
Library (Maricopa County Public Library system).
This surpasses the attendance at last year's fair and
makes it one of the Library's most popular
programs. The BFGHS wishes to thank Robin
Salthouse for coordinating the event.
The next meeting of the BFGHS will be
on Saturday, April 12th, from 11 AM to 2 PM, at Harmon
Library, 1325 South 5th Avenue in Phoenix.
A number of
local genealogy workshops and national conferences
are scheduled for the coming months. Check out
