RootsTech 2024  (Demonstrations/Activities)
Virtually or via attendance in Salt lake City, Utah

Join the world’s largest celebration of family February 29-March 2, 2024 That’s RootsTech.

Yes, it’s time again to “virtually” attend for FREE this annual genealogical conference. Oh, and did I mention you can attend FREE? There will be Keynote speakers and a TON of recorded classes and, like other years, you can also contact other folks that you know who are also attending (in person or virtually) that you are related to or have connections with. To do all this you will need to “register” for the event at www.familysearch.org. You can select the classes you are interested in starting January 28th. Those classes will still be available for a time after the conclusion of RootsTech 2024.

Special Saturday KCGS Library Hours  (Demonstrations/Activities)
10:00 am to 1:00 pm
413 N Main Street, Suite L, Ellensburg, Washington 98926
Hey, do you work during the weekdays so you can't get to the KCGS Library to do your genealogy research?  Well... we have an option for YOU!!!  During the months of February, March and April we are trying a "special Library Hours" event on the 2nd Saturday of those months.  We will be OPEN from 10am to 1pm on those Saturdays as a "trial" to see if members/others would use that opportunity.  
 
One caveat - since the building is normally LOCKED on weekend, if you want to use those hours please call us at 509 925-5951 so we can get you in.  Also, for entry to the building on Saturday, use the door facing Main Street, not the rear door of the building.

"Memories of a World's Fair - Expo 74 or Others"  (Society Meetings)
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
413 N Main Street, Suite L Ellensburg, Washington 98926
Wow!  Can you believe it's been 50 years since Spokane hosted the Expo 74 World's Fair?  In honor of that anniversary, the presentation at the March 11th meeting of the KCGS Society will take a look at what KCGS Members remember about that Fair.  KCGS members are asked to share memories and/or souvenirs of that fair with our membership.  Perhaps you only attended "in spirit" - well THAT counts too as your memories may have come from TV or newspaper coverage instead.  Since this will be an "audience participation" event come prepared to share your memories.
 
Ok, not everyone may have THOSE memories but maybe, like one of our members, you have memories of other fairs like the one in 1962 in Seattle, or the Vancouver BC fair in 1986 or some other World's Fair.  We are happy to hear about those memories as well.  Let's enjoy our look at "Fairs!"
 
As usual, guests are also welcome at our meetings and presenations.  Lite refreshments will also be available during the break.  Hope to see you Monday, March 11th at 1:30pm.
