Friday, April 17
Round Table  (Round Table)
10:00 am
Bluestem Bistro
Each third Friday of the month, an open group meets at Bluestem Bistro for one and a half hours of stimulating discussion ranging from historical backgrounds of our ancestors to methodology and software recommendations. If it has a relation to family history and genealogy (however, vague) we are open to sharing insights and information as well as small victories. All levels of expertise are represented and members can contribute as little or as much (within polite limitations) as they wish. 
 
The group represents many backgrounds of professional expertise, and is fluid in its makeup. It is casual come-when –you –can for coffee and conversation (or Tea and Sympathy). Fascinating stories have emerged, friendship formed, insights shared, help available.  We never know in advance where the discussion will lead; it is determined by the wishes of the group. All are invited to a post discussion lunch at Bluestem. The Friday pizza special is a favorite.

The monuments were commissioned by the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). They were installed in each of the 12 states along the National Old Trails Road (Route 40), which extended from Bethesda, Maryland, to Upland, California. The Madonna of the Trail in Kansas is in Council Grove.
