This Week in the Scholar

These past six months Godfrey staff and volunteers have been busy bringing all sorts of new content to the Godfrey Scholar.  Updates have gotten so frequent that we've decided the best way to let people know is through weekly posts on Genealogy from the Godfrey and the Godfrey Facebook page!
