Genealogical society to discuss ‘armchair mysteries’

Does your family have any genealogical mysteries you’d love to solve, but don’t have the time or resources to travel to faraway courthouses or comb through paper records? The Hopkins County Genealogical Society presents Patti Todd Gillespie and her series “Armchair Mysteries Solved at Home with Old School Communication and New School Technology” on how to address these problems. 

Patti Todd Gillespie brings energy and  humor to her classes.  She is a huge believer in lifetime learning and inclusive, respectful presenting.  An avid hobby-genealogist for 30 years, Patti formed Family Lines & Stories, her own research group, 6 years ago.  She stays busy researching for clients and speaks to groups, small and large, in and out of Texas – usually virtually now. 

She presented two sessions at RootsTech Connect 2021; in 2020 she presented several sessions for the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS); she has spoken several times at Texas State Family History Conference.  A former teacher of French & English, Patti very much enjoys presenting.  She watches as many genealogy webinars as possible when not attending to her husband, children, grandchildren, landscaping and rescue dog.  Eventually Patti plans to continue her blog for the 25 avid readers she treasures.

If you need technical support you can call the library at 903-885-8523 for assistance.
