Day 4 the kids went to their first genealogical society meeting! We attended a fine presentation hosted by the Chula Vista Genealogical Society. It was a great introduction to Genie Friends and Genie Work. The presenter was Georgie Stillman, a certified ASA appraiser, who presented an "Heirloom Discovery Day."
Georgie evaluated family heirlooms brought in by CVGS members. Items included pottery, dolls, and a cookie jar.
Then we continued to add to our very long ancestry wall chart.......
OOPS we ran out of Living Room Wall ..........
But the WALL CHART is complete --- the maps are nearly complete --- for our very Genealogy Theme Thanksgiving.
More Indian coexist stories tonight; in particular Maddie's escape (circa 1778), orphans taken in by the Indians after the Civil War in Tennessee (1868) and Great Grandpa Hayley's missionary work in Oklahoma and New Mexico Indian Territory in 1920 - 1948 for bedtime stories tonight.
And yes Aunt Helen, I will include the Cherokee lineage of the Dearmans and the Choctaw lineage of the Dikes. On the computer I will show the Indian Ancestors-Dearmans and the Indian Rolls of Oklahoma as documented by Etta Mae Dikes Hayley.
