In August and October, The Douglas County Historical Society MN is collaborating with the Douglas County Library to present some classes about beginning DNA. If this topic is of interest to you, check out the newsletter for details.
Our collaboration continues, with a November Oral History “How To” class, so you can save those precious family history stories in your own family.

The newsletter also contains some details about some of the interesting research projects/requests we have been working on this spring, and some hints on how you can use the same search techniques that our own staff and research volunteers use.
