Community and church cookbooks are treasures that give us a glimpse of female groups, encapsulated in a place and time. Besides providing delicious treats, these recipe books can also be a springboard to genealogical adventure. Join Erin as we traipse over recipes for Ghorabie, Pacific Slope Punch, and Maple Creams in search of clues to unlock the stories of our female ancestors. Participants will receive a few choice vintage recipes as well as a “recipe” for research planning.
