October Pommern Special Interest Group Meeting - October 13, 2013.

The Pommern Special Interest Group will be having the October meeting on October 13, 2013 at 2 p.m. at the Immigrant Library (1310 Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA).  Parking is available behind the library.

Our speaker will be Alice Colby Volkert.  The topic will be "Through Their Eyes".  After using all the tried-and-true research strategies known, there are still some individuals that just can not be found! As far as researching individuals, we keep narrowing our field of vision until we have little hope of “seeing” anything new. But, if we stop and think about it and no longer try to use our own eyes, but turn around and use the eyes of the person we areinvestigating; we may “see” the solution. What did your mystery person see?
