Genealogy maven Robin Selinger led a study session at the retreat on Sunday, Feb 9, about how to get started with family tree research. Later that week. she helped six congregants discover the origins of their ancestors, finding family tree records and documents such as census, immigration, and marriage records, draft cards, and gravestone photos. One resulting family tree went all the way back to the 1600’s!
