Barbara Wylie will present:  Way Down in Missouri

She’ll discuss the state’s history, its geographic significance in U.S. westward migration and how family historians can research available public records in Missouri.  Many genealogists in Texas and beyond find their family has history in Missouri.

Barbara Brixey Wylie has served on the Association of Professional Genealogists’ Board of Directors and as Secretary of its Lone Star Chapter.  She also served a term on the Texas State Genealogical Society’s Board of Directors. Barb belongs to several Dallas-Fort Worth genealogical/historical organizations but considers the Grand Prairie Genealogical Society as her home base.  As a genealogical speaker/teacher for twenty-plus years, her speaking experience includes more than two hundred genealogical audiences across the nation.  She especially enjoys gathering the family stories that make each ancestor more than just a name and date.
