I'm On The Board

Yes, that's my name next to At Large Director, 2015. I'm not entirely sure what an At Large Director does but I will give it my all! I recently found out the 2015 means I serve a two year term. Maybe I should have asked about that up front? :)

I'm excited to be part of the MoSGA board and will take my obligations very seriously. I had already met several board members through the Heartland APG group and met many more earlier this month at the annual conference. They are a great group of people who work very hard to support the association and its members. I'm looking forward to working with them.

I have mentioned before the struggle I was facing to actually be a volunteer. I had approached several organizations offering to help but never received responses back. I then approached the Midwest Genealogy Center and MoSGA and they both said YES, we want you!

My volunteer plate is now full and I couldn't be happier with the organizations I am affiliated with.

    Wordless Wednesday Ralph W Emery

    This is the perfect photo to stumble onto. Name, place and date! Even better, I know which family he belongs to.

    Wordless Wednesday Deuthner and Emery

    One of the few old family photos that has names. Problem is, even the names don't tell me who these two men are. I have Emerys but I've yet to find a Jess/Jessie connected.
