From time to time our members may submit articles which they have prepared
or found elsewhere and which pertain to genealogy or a related subject and they think other
genies may find of interest.
We have organized these articles into three separate groups to help you find something of
interest. The three groups break down as follows:
1. Research help, articles, tips, web sites, etc.
2. Family stories, vacations, prose, etc.
3. Book reviews, computer things, miscellaneous articles, etc.
We want to invite all members of the Society and other interested parties to contribute to
this area of our web site if you have any information that others may find interesting.
To submit an article please contact our Newsletter editor, Shirley Becker
firstname.lastname@example.org or Randy Seaver
email@example.com and they will instruct you on how to
submit your article.
The following articles pertain to the RESEARCH aspect of genealogy and may contain help tips,
strategies and other web site suggestions.
