This program will start with an overview by Cheryl Collins and Allana Parker about the settlement of Manhattan, Kansas. You will learn about the people and four town-founding groups that arrived in Riley County in the territorial days and how Manhattan was established.
Riley County Genealogy Society volunteers (Marcia Schuley & Theresa Wilson) will then share their research on one of these early settlers and demonstrate how to use RCGS and other resources to discover information and uncover history.
