Have you wanted to hold a family reunion but weren't sure how to make everything come together?  Learn how on May 13, where James M. Beidler will present Organizing (or Reorganizing!) That Family Reunion.

DateTuesday, May 13, 2014, 8:00 pm Central

Description: There’s no place as good for a family’s history as a reunion, but the gatherings come and go – learn how to organize one that will last or reorganize one that’s fading.

Presenter: James M. Beidler

He is also a columnist for German Life magazine and is editor of Der Kurier, the quarterly journal of the Mid-Atlantic Germanic Society. He is also an instructor for the online Family Tree University. Beidler contributes to periodicals ranging from The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine to Family Tree Magazine.
