Program: "Overcoming 'Brickwalls' in Genealogy Research"
Presenter: Glenn Schmitt
Where: 3M Center, Building 220-2N, "B" Conference Room, Maplewood, MN
When: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Glenn Schmitt started genealogy ... documenting and researching his family history ... at the very young age of 15. Over the years Glenn has developed into a seasoned genealogist. He has been a volunteer librarian at the Oakdale Family History Center for the past 10 years, contributor to the Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International's quarterly publication "Nase rodina," and speaker at a variety of conferences in and around the Twin Cities.
Research "brickwalls" can seem insurmountable but persistence can pay off. Join Glenn Schmitt for the story of how he approached and overcame one of his biggest (and most rewarding) brickwall challenges. Glenn employed several different genealogy research techniques which he will explain during his presentation.
Note 1: We are meeting in this new building and conference room due to the remodelling through October of our regular location. Please use the Building 224-2E (East) entrance. After badging in - or checking in - at the guard's desk, you will proceed straight ahead on 2nd floor, past the cafeteria entrance into Building 220. Conference Room "B" is located on the left side of the corridor.
Note 2: Please plan to arrive a little early to ensure easy building access and to enjoy a few minutes of socializing before the seminar.
Open to all 3M employees, as well as retirees and guests (3M escort required). New members and those interested in beginning genealogy are always welcome.
This class currently has a total of 20 openings available. So, if you are interested in attending, you will want to register - as soon as possible - either online at the MHS website
