CHIMACUM — Addressing tough family history research problems will be the focus of the Jefferson County Genealogical Society’s monthly meeting Saturday.
The meeting will begin at 10 a.m., preceded by a coffee and social period starting at 9:30 a.m., at the Tri-Area Community Center, 10 West Valley Road, Chimacum.
The meeting is open to the public, and there is no admission fee.
“Breaking Down the Brick Walls” is an annual program that enables a number of the society’s members to have their most difficult family history research problems evaluated, analyzed and addressed by fellow members of the society, said Dick Bennett, a member of the society.
Each family history problem will be the subject of a visual presentation outlining the history and the “research roadblock,” he said.
The society’s education committee has investigated the roadblocks and will present results and suggestions for further research.
Members and attendees also will help identify resources and tools, and provide suggested pathways to solving problems.
All attendees are invited to participate, as it provides ideas on how to pursue their own research dead ends, Bennett said.
