Third PGS Family History Assistance Day a Great Success

The third Family History Assistance Day held by PGS was a great success. Held in March and October of each year, this event offers one-on-one research help to anyone who wants to take advantage of it. Each time the event has been offered, the number of people assisted has increased. This year 27 researchers were helped.

Thanks goes to the many volunteers who made the event possible. They were Dan Hooper, Sherrie Hellrung, Alice Charest, Bob Smith, Larry Hosmer, Rose Mary Hayes, Bob and Suzanne Jump, Donarita Vocca, Damon Hostetler, and Fran Connolly. Education Director Bob Bryan did a great job pulling the effort together.

In addition to the 27 genealogists who received research help, 18 attended two classes on the 1940 census and four particpated in a tour of the Genealogy Center.

Each time the event is offered, additional people participate and more services are offered. The next event is in October, so keep you eye out for it.
