Here’s some news from some of the Special Interest Groups (SIG) of the Eastside Genealogical Society:
- Czech/Slovak Special Interest Group. The next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, February 27th, 9:30 a.m. to Noon, at the usual meeting place, Firehouse #22 in Kirkland (6602 108th Ave NE, Kirkland, WA 98033). Rosie Bodien, who founded the group in 1995, and has been its leader all these years, passed away on Christmas Day, after a two year battle with Ovarian Cancer. This next meeting will focus on how best to move forward.
