Estate Planning and Genealogy

Thinking about planning your estate?
Wondering what that has to do with genealogy?

Attorney Nicholas Egert will show how estate planning and genealogy overlap, including how genealogy tools are used to locate people when working with estate matters. He will discuss different terms used in estate matters and what they mean, as well as share some very interesting examples of the links between genealogy and estates.


Come and join with the happy group of researchers at our meetings!


Visit our staffed library room any Tuesday from 10:00 until 3:00
in the Mary Bray room at the Matheson Memorial Library in Elkhorn.

Mission Statement
The Walworth County Genealogical Society was organized for the purpose of bringing together family researchers who can network together and promote preservation of heirlooms and documents. Our goal is to help others find their ancestors, to educate them about genealogy, to copy cemetery data in the area and to stimulate interest in our county and genealogy.
