Recent Events

General Meeting - March 21st

Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society

Why Genealogy

"Genealogy," noun: a record of the descent of a person or family from an ancestor; lineage. "Genealogist," noun: one who traces that descent.

On March 21, Betty Wiese, a member of our group, and her colleagues will speak about "Why Genealogy?" They are part of the Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society, which holds classes and has speakers concerning ancestor searches. Join us to learn why we should be interested in this topic and, perhaps, get hooked on the search for our own history. Frequently, who each of us is, and what we have become and achieved, is based on the accomplishments and lives of our ancestors.

We are lucky to have this society here on Bainbridge Island. The members are highly educated about the nuances of family searches and have access to websites, speakers, tips, and programs to facilitate investigations. Searching family history is not only fun and enlightening, but, at times, crucial when medical problems arise. This lively and intelligent group is easy and fun to join. Learn more at our next meeting. And remember, if not for our ancestors, we would not exist.

DAYS FOR GIRLS

Guest Speaker - Shirley Wilder

When Celeste Mergens was on an international trip many years ago, she learned that young girls starting puberty couldn't attend school until their periods were over because they lacked the sanitary supplies necessary to help them.

In 2008 she founded Days for Girls to help provide these basic needs that we take for granted.  The organization now has over 400 chapters worldwide and has reached more than 3 million women and girls.

Shirley Wilder will tell us how women have empowered women to overcome this lack of supplies. This is a happy tale of using ingenuity and education about the female body to allow girls to attend school full time.

 This is a story of victory and inspiration that Shirley will unfold for us. It is an intriguing story that you will want to learn more about.
