Editor's note: Today's post was written by  Sandra Gardner-Benward

ON THE ROAD AGAIN .........  
          this was our topic at our April General Meeting. Speaker: Pamela Brett
                              BRAVO!!! an excellent presentation - fun & informative

Let me introduce you to our Program Chair Carolee JONES [oh oh I have a JONES too. Do you think...?] 
our speaker Pamela BRETT

"Practical Tips for Successful On-Site Research"

Consider Your Limitations [what limitations? I can walk a couple of miles through high grass to find that hidden lost cemetery. No problems] Be !!

Do Your Homework - [wow  I have never heard that before. There will be so much to once I get there I don't want to spend a lot of time before the trip!!] and without that homework before, think of all the extra time you will have on the road. It's true.

Plan Out Your - actually write out your itinerary. Find out when places are open, closed, what is available and where, any pre-ordering etc..........  get the details and do an itinary or make it into a TIMELINE for yourself. Make it fun, and get organized.

We learned what the necessary items are to pack, what to bring that is useful while out on the road. AND what to do when you do come back home.

What would you say would be a reward when doing on-site research?

          Personally I would say "to put more flesh on the bones of the lives of my ancestors.

                                                        What about you?
