Spokane Seminar

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the Spokane seminar as much as I did this past weekend. The committee from the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society did an excellent job from my perspective and hats off to them for all their work and preparation. Hopefully everyone enjoyed their doorprizes as much as I enjoyed putting the winning numbers on the screen ;-)

The website for ordering materials will have additional links added to today. That link should be in your handout.

The URL for the Missouri Death Certificates is:
They are still working on it, but those who have people in this place during the time period of the records should give it a go.

If there are other URLs or links that you need from the seminar, please let me know mjnrootdig@gmail.com and I'll send them to you privately or post them here for others to use as well.

Thanks for having me as your speaker. Spokane is certainly a beautiful city and the short tour I got Saturday night from Donna Potter Philips was greatly appreciated. It's clear she loves Spokane and knows a great deal about its history as well.


Here is a link to the book I mentioned during the lecture, Prairie Patrinomy. The link is at Amazon...you don't have to get it there, but that will give you enough bibliographic information to either interlibrary loan or purchase it as is your pleasure.

Links mentioned that weren't in handout:
