We are proud to welcome
Yvonne Mashburn Schmidt, Certified Genealogist®
Yvonne is a native Georgian and was raised in Bartow County, grew up, married, and moved to southern Georgia. She became interested in genealogy in 1967 and began recording family names in the family Bible. After retiring as a property and casualty insurance agency owner, Yvonne decided to follow her roots and studied with the Boston University’s Genealogical Research program and is now a Certified Genealogist®. Yvonne’s DNA journey has helped unravel the puzzling answer her grandmother provided as a response to her 1975 question about her ancestry when she told Yvonne she did not need to know about her ancestors.
Yvonne suggests that we all take care what we tell our children about their ancestry. They might grow up to be genealogists.
She has a great program called “Cass Station Crime & Cover-up” planned for us, and it will keep you on your toes for sure. Sit back, buckle-up and enjoy this interesting presentation about record analysis.
COME, MEET, AND LISTEN TO YVONNE!
It’s free and EVERYONE IS WELCOME, Invite a friend ~ ~ ~
Hope to see you all on October 8, 2017 - 3:00 p.m.
