Workshop participants learn book repair techniques by creating a book for themselves. Pages are provided and the pupils create the binding. The finished product will be a copy of a "how to" pamphlet written by the late Dick Thrift, founder of the CGS Book Repair Committee. Everyone goes home with a self-made instruction book and souvenir of the day.

• Workshop is limited to ten.
• $25 charge for materials.
• Reservation form and pre-payment of fee required.

This is a valuable seminar that is needed by most genealogists, but not available in our area (Daytona Beach, FL).

Have you thought about recording it and making it available on CD, DVD or YouTube? This would expand your income.
