VALLEY CLAN DIGGERS  (Genealogy Group Meetings)
VARIES FOR EACH MONTH - FOR DAY, TIME AND PLACE CONTACT ALICE
Valley Clan Diggers Group: The Valley Clan Diggers is a group of people that meet once a month in different members' homes for the purpose of sharing their genealogical pursuits. In the beginning its members all lived in the valley -- hence the name Valley Clan Diggers. However, the membership is not limited to the valley.
 
The purpose and goals for the group are sharing current projects, helping each other with ancestral "dead-ends", car-pooling to workshops and occasional field trips. At times we do invite a guest speaker who have expertise in a certain specialized area. Anyone who feels that such a group meets their needs, you are welcome at the Valley Clan Diggers wholeheartedly!

Contact Alice Hostetter (509) 928-4198 for more information.
