Niagara County Genealogical Society To Present Program January 26th

The Niagara County Genealogical Society will present a program on January 26th to help aspiring genealogists get started with their family history projects.

This presentation is for all people who have said to themselves at one time or another that they wish they knew more about who their family was, but have not started the journey (or are just starting). We can help you find those people, help you record the information in an organized way and share tips & strategies for using local and online resources to get you started!

Shenanigans Episode 63: Revisiting 2017 Part II

What happens when illness strikes the cast of Shenanigans? Well, we skip recording and build a "Best Of" (which is actually way harder than simply recording.) We dip back into the vaults to the last shows of 2017 to bring you some funny moments. We revisit bits about public restrooms, shopping on Amazon, homemade rocket kits for Flat Earthers, and Rich's favorite after dinner candy. There is an interesting conversation about the new Star Wars movies, and the Bibizzle rears its ugly head.
