November and NARA – Research Adventures 

QHGS member Christine Elia traveled to Saint Louis recently, and while she was there she researched military records at the National Archives.

If you have ever wanted to research records housed at a NARA branch, this is the presentation for you! On November 15th, beginning at 1:15 p.m., Chris will tell us about her preparation strategy and how she requested record files before she left California. She will also tell us what she found and how she helped others with their research.

RESEARCH TIP: Remember—members of your local genealogy club can be just as knowledgable in their chosen fields as nationally known speakers are in theirs; so, don't be afraid to ask the person sitting next to you at a meeting for help. You might be researching the same surname and not know it!
