In celebration of Family History Month, the Knight Museum and Sandhills Center's Heritage Room will have volunteers available to help visitors each Tuesday in October from 1 to 5 p.m. The Heritage Room is a great place to begin your research if you are interested in Alliance, NE, Box Butte County or even the panhandle of Nebraska. The museum is located at 908 Yellowstone Ave. in Alliance.
From 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 28th the museum will provide table space for people to bring and share their family treasures, memorabilia, old photographs and genealogy items. It will be interesting to see all of the items that spell out family and genealogy! The entry area of the museum already contains memorabilia and signs about the events.
At 7 p.m. Ruby Coleman (that's me!) will be speaking about "The Sisters Next Door." Actually the title of my speech is "Writing About Ancestors, Neighbors, Friends and Murderers." Focus will be placed on a recent article that I wrote for Internet Genealogy which pertains to the unique and mysterious story about two former residents of Alliance, NE.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about genealogy and share in what can be accomplished, how to research and have a lot laughs and fun the evening of October 28th.
