Living Voices – A Great Event

Rachael Atkins did a superb performance at the Living Voices event this afternoon.  It was enjoyable to witness her storytelling with video and theatrical performance!

Special thanks to SGS member Pat Rongey for arranging accommodations for Ms. Atkins.

Member Marilee Mulvey shares a link (courtesy Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter) to a reverse genome project of a man who ‘has been dead since 1827’.  Scientists have ‘managed to reconstruct part of his genome from 182 of his descendants, even though his remains have long since been lost.’  View the article HERE.
