5th Annual GSMC Ellis Library Lock In
 
Bring your research materials (laptops and other digital devices are welcome) and be sure to be in the library before 5:00pm (the normal closing time) on the second floor.  We will research or share research stories until 9:00pm.  Jim & Loretta will bring pizza again.  If anyone wants to bring a snack to share, that would be awesome.
 
Please contact Mary if you plan to attend, so we know the headcount for pizza and so the library knows how many to expect.  Computers will be available for use upstairs and the doors to the book and microfilm rooms will be open for us to browse.  
 
This is a great opportunity to check out what Ellis has to offer and spend some time visiting with your fellow genealogists.  Bring a friend who is just getting started in genealogy!

Joann Puffer was one of 627 young women who served in the American Red Cross Supplemental Recreation Activities Overseas program during the Vietnam War.  She was part of the vanguard of women, dubbed Donut Dollies, formally allowed to venture into combat zones.
Forty years after after her Vietnam ventures, she has written a book based largely on her personal journal and subsequent interviews.  Her book, Donut Dolly is a valuable addition to understanding the Vietnam War experience.

Rick Grassley, one of our past presidents, will share some of the research he has done on the Spanish Flu epidemic and how it impacted the citizens of Monroe County.  The Spanish Flu spread across the entire world and killed thousands of individuals, many thought to be healthy until they contracted this terrible illness.  It was a leading cause of death for those in the military during WW1, and because of the close quarters of the soldiers it spread quickly despite attempts to quarantine the sick.  
 
As always, the public is welcome and refreshments will be served.
