Helping at Charleston SC Family History Center during #NGS2011

13 May

Even before the first shift began at the Charleston SC Family History Center, patrons from Kentucky had stopped by yesterday to find resources to document an ancestor who lived locally.  I always enjoy my visits to the center in October where I am usually invited to give presentations.

I had not had the opportunity to see the staff work their magic with patrons who need assistance until yesterday.  I helped to determine the basics, time period and names, for the patron, but of course was dependent on the staff’s knowledge of resources on site.

After the initial help, Vivian Kessler, volunteer, produced a book on the Wadamalaw area and the patron found a reference in no time.  I am always amazed at the varied types of local resources you can find in a center.

Vivian and her husband, Paul, were kind enough to pose with me yesterday so that Mr. @SavingStories could take a photo of us.  These are only a couple of the great friends I have made here.  They have also been a great help to those whom I have referred.
