Tyler Public Library—Taylor
Speaker: Kelvin L. Meyers
Program: “How Great Thou Art!
How Great They Are!
Underused and underutilized - this vast group of
records can be a challenge to the “un-churched”. Determining the
denomination in which your ancestor was a part can be the biggest
challenge. The second challenge is to actually find those records.
With these two things accomplished, many genealogical questions can
be answered. Denominational newspapers will also be discussed.
