Exploring roots and myths

“Did My Ancestors Really Pay for the Mayflower Voyage?” is the topic of a meeting at 1 p.m. Jan. 14. by the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society, 6111 188th Place NE, Arlington.

The guest speaker is Lori Lee Sauber. While researching her English ancestral roots, she kept seeing non-specific references to her family being among the merchant group that provided the capital for the Mayflower voyage — but was it true? She will explain the research trail and whether this was factual or just a myth propagated by others.

This meeting is free and open to the public.
