Monthly Town Hall Meeting – June 12, 2021 at 3 pm Eastern Time

Please join us this Saturday, June 12th, as Fr. Michael “Tad” Parks explains the Parke Society’s unique system for identifying both the many different Park/e/s lineages in our database, as well as the individuals within those lineages. The Lineage Key system, or LK for short, is not as complicated as it seems to those unfamiliar with it, and once the basic concept is understood, enables us to quickly identify a Park/e/s individual without confusion or a great deal of additional identifying verbiage.

Following the short presentation, as always, the floor will be open for discussion or questions about this or any other topic attendees may wish to raise. If you have attended a meeting in the past, your link from previous meetings should work, but in any case a join link may be obtained by contacting Parke Society President, Susan Van Allen at her email listed on the Parke Society webpage or in our newsletter. Meetings are open to Society members and to those interested in joining.

Monthly Town Hall Meeting – May 8, 2021 at 3 pm Eastern time

Rather than focusing on a specific topic, this month’s meeting will be more of a “free-for-all” where any subject or topic that anyone wishes to discuss will be addressed by all participants; staff, officers, and members alike. If you have a question about your particular lineage or a brick wall problem you’re having trouble with, feel free to share it with the group and take advantage of others’ thoughts and advice. If you’d like Fr. Michael Parks, as PS Historian, or Ken Parks, as DNA Administrator, to address your specific lineage, please contact them ahead of time so they can have the needed information on your lineage handy. You can find their email addresses on the “Contact Us” page on the PS website or in your newsletter. We hope to see you on Saturday!
