• “Stuck? Have You Tried ...? Have You Overlooked ...?” — Your answer may be “out there.” Session covers techniques and resources that offer help in overcoming that proverbial “brick wall” in family history research. Genealogical problem-solving involves the creative use of sources that many genealogists and historians neglect to use or don't know how to use.

• “A Baker's Dozen: Easy Ways to Begin Writing Your Family History” — Visuals will demonstrate the “Baker's Dozen” and a handout will point you to further ideas and help in both print and online formats.

Registration is $40 for society members and $50 for non-society members until Feb. 27. After Feb. 27 add $10 to registration fee. For more information and a copy of the registration form, go to the society website at www.dallasgenealogy.org. The society newsletter is now available on the website.
