CFA ST.LOUIS MEETING
June 11-12, 2010
It’s a pleasure to report on our very successful 10th Anniversary meeting in
Jun. 11/12, 2010 at the St. Louis Airport Hilton. First, I want to thank Ernie and Pauline Chapman for hosting the meeting and a special thanks to Liz Codding, Program Chair, for putting together both an informative and fun agenda. St. Louis, MO-
The meeting was dedicated to Gil Alford , CFA Founder. Without Gil’s foresight, dedication and energy the CFA would not have come into existence.
Ernie and Pauline put together information on the DNA project. Ernie is the DNA coordinator for the CFA. Ernie, in a separate presentation led a discussion on the use of “Internet Tools”. Later Mark Chapman, a historian, presented a talk on the “Gateway to the West” describing the realities of our ancestors moving west emphasizing 1840’s-1850’s.
