"Breaking Down Your Brick Wall"

Speaker:  La Nell Shores, Past President &

La Nell brings great knowledge, service and enthusiasm to the Oklahoma Genealogical Society.  She is currently the Oklahoma Genealogical Society’s Corresponding Secretary, Librarian and Acquisitions Chair, and teaches the Legacy Family Tree software user group via Zoom for our Special Interest Group.  She has been an avid genealogist for more than 30 years. She is a Past President of Oklahoma Genealogical Society and active board member for about 20 years. She is a member of Daughters of the American Revolution where she served 3 terms as Regent of Council Grove Chapter among so many other accomplishments. La Nell has achieved all this while also being married to Michael Shores for 57 years, mother of 3, grandmother of 8, great grandmother of 4 and retired tax preparer and accountant for a CPA until her retirement in 2007! No doubt about it, La Nell will set you on the right course for success in breaking down your brick wall.
