Armchair Mysteries

Grand Prairie Memorial Library, 901 Conover Drive, Grand Prairie
Meeting IN PERSON Featuring Patty Gillespie on Armchair Mysteries 
And... Virtual via Zoom!

Topic Discussion: Armchair Mysteries Solved at Home with Old School Communication and New School Technology. This presentation offers abundant tips, tricks, and examples for a researcher who’s looking for answers far from home and are not online. Often underused research and resource opportunities are just an email away—and sometimes still a phone call away! The techniques presented here often provide successful means to resolving the mysteries of our ancestors using both online sites and offline sources for information.
About the Speaker: Patti Todd Gillespie brings energy and humor to her classes. She is a believer in lifetime  learning and inclusive presenting. An avid hobby genealogist for 30 years, Patti formed  Family Lines & Stories, her own research company, 7 years ago. She stays busy researching for clients and speaks to groups, small and large, in and out of Texas. In 2022 she presented three sessions to Utah State Genealogy Society; she presented two sessions at RootsTech 2019 and RootsTech Connect 2021; in 2020 she presented several sessions  for the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS); she has spoken several times at Texas  State Family History Conference. She continues as 5th term president of Wise County  Genealogical Society while waiting for a willing soul to step up. A former teacher of French & English, Patti very much enjoys presenting. She watches genealogy webinars and South Korean and Chinese television shows when not attending to her husband, children, grandchildren, landscaping, and rescue dog. Eventually Patti plans to continue her blog for  the 25 avid readers she treasures.
