Inaugural Event a Success

On this beautiful Saturday, April 6, 2013, researchers came from as far as 50 miles away to talk to society representatives, learn where to find information on perplexing ancestors, and discover resources each group offers to enliven our ancestor's trek through southern Illinois.
