12:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Speaker Chuck Delgado
 
After 10 years in law enforcement in Spokane & Stevens County, Chuck worked in the mining industry in Alaska, returning to Spokane in the winter as a Private Investigator. He also spent 14 years in the Public Defenders office administering polygraph exams.
 
His interest in learning how to access public records was the result of working as a private investigator.  He had to teach himself how to obtain information which agencies did not want to provide.
 
As it applies to Genealogy, finding that missing person can be the key to completing the family tree.  Thinking "outside the Box" will be part of the class.
