I know Ms. Hess-Norris and her presentation will give the highest quality information and be entertaining. The information is particularly important when you consider the world of hurt people are going through in TENN and MISS from flooding.

Family history is SO important to preserve and protect. In addition to the information at this worthwhile presentation, there are additional info/free articles and posts at www.saveyourstuff.com/blog that may be of interest.
