Power-Up SIG Notes: Family Reunions

Researching Family Reunions

  • Reunions were big around the turn of the previous century
  • Frequently mentioned in local newspapers — look for lists of guests (a good place for clues to women’s married names)
  • Many were structured, with annual minutes and scrapbooks.  Look in local libraries, museums. I found one digitized on FamilySearch.org
