The CCGS annual banquet is always a good time, so make sure your there to socialize, enjoy a good meal and hear our speaker for the evening. This is a wonderful facility with plenty of good parking and easy to access.
Our speaker for this event is Robyn N. Smith and the topic is "Cluster Research: Using Other People to Find Your People"
Our ancestors did not live in a vacuum. They lived, worked, socialized, and married in the midst of a larger group of people. Those people included not just family members but friends, neighbors, employers and fellow employees, fellow churchgoers, and business associates. Elizabeth Shown Mills refers to this group with the clever shorthand of their “FAN” club—their friends, associates and neighbors. Researching this larger group of people often leads to greater success in genealogy, as opposed to just researching our target person or couple of interest.
