This month we’ll be enjoying about 300 of our closest genealogy friends for the week of June 10-15, 2012 for IGHR.  Since they’ll be busy learning how to best find & cite their ancestors, we thought we’d highlight some of our genealogy documents. Please keep in mind that some of the documents have more current electronic editions.
