Genealogy Chat (CANCELLED)

GenChat
In-Person GenChats are cancelled until further notice.
 
This is a 'come when you want' get-together to discuss anything genealogy related. Ask questions, discuss a brickwall, share a new discovery.
 
Stop in, grab a cup of coffee, and join the conversation for a few minutes or a couple hours. Better yet, stay for lunch; the food is great!.
