Last evening Mary Christensen announced our assignment to prepare for the 7 PM Jan 6, 2015regular Kittitas Co Genealogy Soc meeting:

BRING AN OBJECT THAT YOU CAN TELL A 2 Minute family story about.

Mary suggested writing down your two minute story
December 2014 Yakima Society newsletter should be in our library by Wednesday. On page 3 describes a Winter 1918-9 train trip from Tri-Cities area to an uncle’s ranch in the Wenas. They accessed the Wenas via Ellensburg. Her uncle met them with a car & drove up Shushuskin Canyon in those days, as the Yakima Canyon road was not built until the 1930s (& passenger train from their remote White Bluffs area did not go up through Yakima town, but rather up the Columbia River to Beverly WA, and a Milwaukee Road train to Ellensburg). Also good is her description of her Uncle Jack’s ranch in the Wenas.
Many of us have Irish or Ulster Scot ancestors. In Yakima Saturday, March 28, 2015 , Spring Seminar  (YVGS)   9:00 am to 4:00 pm
