An awesome genealogist!

Today, Wednesday, July 17, 2014, I had a half day of genealogy help from Bonny Beth Elwell.  Bonny is a genealogist, historian and author.  She has written a local history book on the Pittsgrove, Upper Pittsgrove area.  She is also President of the Salem County Genealogy Society
www.gsscnj.org.
Some highlights of their new website include:
  • Links to local historical societies and genealogy websites
  • Events calendars of our meetings and other local historical activities
  • Directions to our meetings and contact information
  • A list of the books and other items we offer for sale
  • Resources for researchers
  • Charts and forms to download
  • Guidelines for beginning family research
  • An index of the DVDs for members to borrow
  • PDF copies of old Ancestors' Attic articles
  • Helpful hints for genealogy research
Bonny most definitely provided the above mentioned "helpful hints for genealogical research" and got my 'tree-meant-for-framing' up and read to finalize.  I was stumped and couldn't seem to move forward without help.  She also found some treasures on the internet including a photograph of an ancestor in his Civil War uniform.  It was a very productive day thanks to Bonny.  

Should you be interested in Bonny's help, Phone 609-670-0407

Sometimes you just need a guide on the family history trail! Happy Trails!  Jo Ann
