I’m excited to announce that John P. Colletta, Ph.D., will be presenting an all-day seminar in Columbus, Ohio, on April 6, 2013. The seminar is being sponsored by the Ohio Chapter Palatines to America and will be held at the Columbus Metropolitan Library. Full details are still being worked out, but Dr. Colletta will be giving four lectures and a catered lunch will be included. As I understand it, three of the presentations will be topics of interest to all family historians, and one will be of special interest to those researching ancestors from the Alsace-Lorraine region.
I’ve had the pleasure of hearing John Colletta speak a couple of times before, and he’s a delight to listen to. I love his sense of humor and his passion. He’s engaging and knowledgeable and…well, you’ll just have to come and see what I mean for yourself.
I know this is far in advance, but because spring is always a busy time for conferences and events, I thought you might like to know so you can mark your calendar now. I think you’re going to like the price, too. I serve as publications chairperson for Ohio Chapter PalAm, so I’ll keep you up-to-date as arrangements are finalized. In the meantime, if you’d like more information, check out John Colletta’s website at www.genealogyjohn.com. And if you haven’t yet read his book Only A Few Bones, you might consider adding it to your holiday wish list. You can order it from my friend Martha at Maia’s Books. Hope to see you in April!
