Roadblocks, Red Lights and Detours: Records Access for Genealogists  (S-317)
This was supposed to be the Age of the Information Superhighway. Instead, even as so many records are coming online, doors are being slammed shut on so many more – often records that aren’t and won’t be online, now and perhaps ever. As a community and as individuals, learn what we can do to protect records access.
Choice of:

Baked Scrod w/ Tomato Caper Lemon Sauce - $36.00
Vegetarian - Portabella Stack w/ Sundried Tomato Coulis - $34.00
