The boot camp staff included Drill Instructor Margaret Chaney, Master Sargent Jean Barnes, and Battalion Leaders Sue Zacharias, Dot Martin, and Marlene Applegate. A total of 34 "recruits" signed up for the event and filled the OGS Library conference room almost to capacity. They were divided into three battalions for "G R Duty" (Genealogy Research in the library and computer lab) in between training sessions.
The training sessions covered Vital Records and Courthouse Research, Census Research, and Researching on the Internet.
It was remarkable to see the enthusiasm, especially among some of the recruits who were brand-new to genealogy research.
