(2-11-13) The Mar. 7 ancestry.com event by Crista Cowen is CANCELLED due to an unresolvable schedule conflict.
Crista Cowen finally responded to Shenton on 2-10-14 and informed him that she had double booked herself. Our Friday session with her is CANCELLED. Some not so good alternatives were proposed, so "what to do" is currently being assessed. Watch here for updates. Crista Cowen, a representative from ancestry.com will be visiting us 1 PM to 5 PM March 7, 2014 and all day at BGS in the Cocoa library on March 10. Tentative agenda for Mar 7 at Melbourne Library
