Title:  “Using a Timeline to Break Down Your Brick Walls”
 
What is a timeline?  How can it be used to find those elusive ancestors?  Add a new tool to your genealogy arsenal and use it to break down brick walls.  A timeline can be used on individuals and families to organize and analyze the information you already have, and it will help you pinpoint new directions in which to research. The public is welcome to attend the Carroll County Genealogical Society meetings which are held at 7:30 p.m. in the Dixon Room at the Westminster Branch Library, 50 East Main Street, Westminster. For more information on the society, go to http://www.carr.org/ccgs/. The meetings usually last about one hour.
