Genealogy Roundtable Forum

As a service to the local genealogy community the West Nebraska Family Research & History Center hosts a monthly Genealogy Round-table Forum.  The goal of the monthly Forum is to bring people together to listen to and learn about genealogy related topics and then have an open discussion about that topic.  The Forum is scheduled for the third Saturday each month at 1:30pm.  Occasionally we will schedule a field trip where we all carpool somewhere, but for the most part all of the round-table discussions are held at our facility in Scottsbluff.  Below is a copy of the speaker and topic schedule for the current year and a list and link to topics we discussed in prior years.  Please consider joining us and sharing your knowledge.
