Press Release

Spending time making friends and getting ideas to excel in research is a part of Genealogy in the Woods 2007. The idea of a weekend away from everything, concentrating on your favorite hobby while enjoying an "old school" camp atmosphere appeals to many people. The Gregath Publishing Company is pleased to present it's third genealogy and history retreat October 19-21, 2007 at Sky Ranch in Rural northeast Oklahoma.

Scrapbook hobbyists may begin Friday morning for a full day of scrapbook instruction from award-winning scrapbook builders that are based in genealogical and historical research and preservation. Those who prefer only scrapbook instruction may reserve space in the special Friday Scrapper program. Friday will be devoted to scrapbooking and associated skills, presented by award-winning scrapbookers, Shirley Ratliff and Luretta Williams.

The all-inclusive experience actually begins Friday afternoon with check in and two hands-on scrapbooking sessions and forum before dinner, entertainment and the first formal, scheduled genealogy topic. Overnight accommodations are provided on-site in suites that will host four researchers each. All meals are provided, as well as snacks, beverages, goodie bags and door prizes.

In addition to the scrapbook workshops, weekend speakers and topics include Genealogical Proof Standard, Randy Scott; Genetic Genealogy (DNA), Sherrell Buchanan; American Migration Patterns - Waterway Routes, Steve King; Layered History, Sharolyn and Patrick McCoy; Document Analysis, Randy and Karen Scott; Wrangling Your Computer from Organization to Immunization, Debbie Sumner; Vitals of Vital Statistics, Karen Scott; Using eBay to Increase Your Research Library and Power Up with PowerPoint presented by national speaker Carrie Cook. These informative sessions will touch on extra genealogical and historical topics.

Attendees will enjoy the opportunity to learn more about genealogical and historical topics in this relaxed and beautiful backwoods setting. They will also find many networking opportunities as well as time to kick back and enjoy a weekend full of fun.

Registration, due by October 1, 2007, starts at $25.00 for Friday Scrappers. Several other packages including an all inclusive (Friday afternoon-Sunday morning) registration weekend for only $175.00 per person (six per suite occupancy).
