Free Seminar this September – Save the Date & Share! Wednesday, Dec 7 2011 

The 2012 Gregath Family History Seminar will be held Saturday, September 22, 2012 at the Baxter Springs History Center and Museum in Baxter Springs, Kansas. There is no charge to attend the lectures and no registration necessary.
More information and updates can be found at http://www.gregathcompany.com/workshop/2012
 
The national genealogy speakers on staff at the Gregath Company, Incorporated would like to help you be a successful family researcher.  In this economy, many researchers are forgoing attending these types of events because they feel the cost of attendance is too high. While the information you gain and networking available pays dividends far into the future, Gregath Company understands this way of thinking. We hope a day of free seminars and face to face networking will enrich everyone’s lives and researching skills.
