The Lakewood Ranch Genealogy Club meets on the first Monday of the month from November through April at the Lakewood Ranch Town Hall. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. and all are welcome. For additional information please contact Nancy Johnson with inquiries. Please write "LWR Genealogy" in the subject line).
Our next meeting will be on February 2nd. Donna Moughty, a professional genealogist and club founder, will present a program on Preparing for a Research Trip…Here or Abroad. Hopefully the time will come when you have enough information to begin planning a trip to a major repository (perhaps Salt Lake City) your ancestral homeland. If it’s an overseas trip, knowing the exact place is key to your success as borders may have changed since your ancestor’s emigration. The key to your success is starting with yourself and working back, finding all of the records left by your ancestor, as well as their extended family, associates and neighbors.
