Update from Jo-Anne Huber
November 5, 2022: 
We have had many requests asking how we are doing after the fire next door. We are slowly gathering information about how to move forward. While we did not have any water damage with regards to the books, we have had major smoke damage and they will be sent out for cleaning. We thank everyone for their concern and good wishes during this stressful time. We will be back, and we will be better than ever. We will keep you posted.

Rick Sayre at 2022 Autumn Quest
Even though the HQRL Management Team and Board were dealing with the aftermath of a next door fire, Autumn Quest was still a "go" via Zoom. Rick Sayre provided so much good information and links for our research. His topics were NARA, how to access information in the National Archives; Military Manuscript Collections; Cool Tools for the Cemetery; and Online tools to Homestead Records. If you missed this wonderful seminar you can access a few of Rick's webinars at Legacy/Family Tree webinars.
