AFHS Fall Seminar was fun and educational


John Althouse is an excellent speaker and we all learned a lot about writing our family histories. We also had the pleasure of hearing from some of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Thanks to all who helped organize and set up, and thanks to all who attended. Hope to see you at the next event!
