Presentation at the College......

Monday at noon we were asked to do a presentation at the Palau Community College. They offered a class on genealogy but no one signed up so they cancelled it. They found out that the LDS church has the largest collection of records and asked Vangie, since she was a member, if we would be willing to come and make a presentation. There were about 40 people at the presentation and we stayed after and answered questions.  The presentation was well received and there were many questions that took what was to be a one hour lecture into a two hour discussion. In addition to the questions about genealogy, family history and DNA testing, there were many questions about the church. Some of the older participants were already tracing their ancestry and many of the younger ones had a genuine interest developed to look into their origins and the use of technology in family history. The missionaries are following up on those who wanted to know more about the Church.
