Michael Wynne will return to present another interesting program for our Society. He is a grandson of the Whipp family of Opelousas who lives in the Alexandria area & is active in genealogy and publishing the many fruits of his genealogical research efforts.
We have asked him to speak of the many values of collecting family history and the sharing of it through publishing it in multiple ways.
He has published many books, some of collections of family letters as well as books of family Photographs.
In addition, he will speak of his experiences in publishing these many books and the ease these days to do so and at reasonable prices.
As usual, he will be delighted to participate on a session after his presentation when attendees may ask questions for further information.
Please come & join us - coffee served beginning around 9:30am.
