Upcoming Additions

Bill and Donna Gray have very graciously shared their collection of postcards of the local area and largely, Rock Springs Park with us. In January, I will be adding this collection as well as some from Cookie Sisco's collection to the Photo Album Pages at the Genealogy Pit Stop web site. Bill has provided many names and a complete photo for the Harker Pottery Workers. That will also be added to the photo albums.

We will also begin making plans for the 2009 Genealogy Fair. The details will be posted on the web site as they fall into place. Lots of exciting things are being planned.

Happy Holidays from everyone at Genealogy Pit Stop!
