If you’re looking for something to do the weekend of August 18th, I highly recommend heading to Knoxville to attend the East Tennessee History Fair. I had the opportunity to attend a couple of years ago when the Fair was held in conjunction with the First Families of Tennessee reunion. I have to admit, this is one event that I look forward to every year!
Some of my favorite events include the History Hound contest and the cake celebrating Davy Crockett’s birthday. There is really too much happening for me to go into in this post, so below is the link to ETHS website with more information about the Fair. I’ll be there this year, wearing my pink “surnames” shirt, so if you see me…make sure to say hi! 🙂
Hey everyone! The Facebook DNA class is up on the Cool Girl Facebook page. The class will be on Aug 22nd from 7-8pm (Central). If you can’t make it “live” that’s okay! I’ll keep the class open for a few extra days, so feel free to stop by! Make sure to go to the Facebook page and click “going” so you don’t miss anything! I can’t wait to “see” you there! 🙂

In case you didn’t know, the Kentucky Genealogical Society’s seminar is coming up on Saturday, August 4th. I had the opportunity to attend a couple of years ago and learned so much! The sessions include:

A new goal I have is to make sure y’all know about local/national seminars that are happening. There’s nothing worse than missing out on something great! If you know of something coming up…and would like to be featured send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
