Clay Center, Kansas

The Kansas Council of Genealogical Societies 46th Annual Genealogy Conference

co-sponsored by the Clay County Historical Museum

BETH FOULK will be our featured speaker.

Beth has turned a lifetime genealogy passion into an opportunity to share what she’s learned with genealogists across the country.

She has documented her Civil War, War of 1812, and Revolutionary War ancestors. She has mapped the migration of her Kansas and Missouri pioneers, and researched the arrival of her many Massachusetts Colonial settlers. Each ancestor and each story quickly became a “teaching moment” for her classes.

“The only thing more fun than a genealogy find is sharing what I’ve learned to help other genealogists,” she says. Beth Foulk first taught as a volunteer at the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri since 2008.

You will learn many practical pointers and useful ideas for your own research!  Check out the Conference tab for the registration form!!
