Migration trails are topic of Feb. 17 Edmond Genealogical Society meeting
EDMOND — "Migration Trails" will be the topic of the Edmond Genealogical Society meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
Helen Lehman will share what she has learned while searching the migratory patterns of her own English, Irish, Scottish and Dutch ancestors, and her husband’s German ancestors, discovering who came from where and how they got there.
Since her genealogical adventures began in 1981, Lehman has filled 26 large three-ring binders with family papers and genealogical records. She also produced a more than 600-page book focused on the Lehman/Lehmann family. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she and her husband, John, were directors of the Family History Library in Oklahoma City for more than seven years.
Edmond Genealogical Society meetings are free and open to the public, beginning with social time at 6:15 p.m. Programs start at 6:30 p.m. A genealogy society member is available at 5:30 p.m. the day of the meeting to assist those who have family research questions.
Meetings are held the third Monday of the month at the Edmond Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1315 E 33rd. Visitors should enter through the rear doors on the north side of the building.
The March 16 program will be on "The Genealogy Gals Research in Washington, D.C."
