Spring Discussion Group

Breaking through Brick Walls
These meetings are scheduled:  April 13, 20 & 27th & May 11, 18 & 25th
at the Rehoboth Public Library from 11:00 AM until 1:PM
At these meetings we'll discuss "Brick Walls" and resources and methods to help in our research.  Each week 2 attendees will present their "Brick Walls" using the form and what they've already accomplished in their research.  The group will take home the attendees forms and help by spending an hour researching on their own.  At the following session we'll discuss our findings and then 2 more attendees will present their information.  Over the 6 weeks we hope to help solve several mysteries!
Please download and print this form.  Fill it out as best you can.  Feel free to add other information or documents that may be helpful.  Make about 10 copies to be shared with other searchers and bring them to the Discussion Group.  Feel free to bring your lunch.
