The Fifth more or less Annual Genealogists' Seminar was held at Mainesburg
PA June 17th and 18th 1999, hosted by Joyce M. Tice with a lot of help
from her friends. Saturday evening a few of us met for informal dinner
in Mansfoeld, followed by some Power Point computerized slide shows at
Mainesburg by Joyce M. Tice. On Sunday people dirfted in all morning and
got acquainted. Following a dish to pass lunch, the main program took up
all afternoon. Patsy Pifer brought the Tombstone Cake shown above - very
delicious - but she did say she had a little difficulty persuading the
cake decorator that she really did want tombstones on the cake.
