Friends speaker discusses genealogy

By Fran Smith
Webster County
Branch Librarian

Genealogy was the topic of conversation at the April monthly meeting
of Webster County Friends of the Library. After a business meeting,
Judy Shumpert introduced the speaker, Sheila Fondren.

Sheila told the audience if they want to trace their family, they
need to start with themselves then proceed backwards. Genealogy deals
with facts and documentation. She distributed sheets sharing
different websites where information could be gathered. Discussion of
genealogy continued after the program as everyone enjoyed their brown-
bag lunch.

Friends of the Library meet the second Monday of each month at 11:30
a.m. at Webster County Public Library in Eupora.
