March 2014

It ’s March and we are set to welcome spring.  We can move from indoors to the outside.   What does this mean for your research?  Will you be visiting a cemetery, going to a far afield library, or visiting a courthouse to find your family?  While it is true that more and more records are coming online every day, it is also true that it will still take many years to get all of the available records online and more records are produced every day.  Perhaps you want to assist other researchers – go to your local cemetery and take digital photos of the graves and post them on Find-A-Grave.
 
We have some good programs in the coming months.  We try hard to find programs that will educate you and enhance your ability to find your family.   In April I will be talking about basics part 2.  Most of us know how to use a census to build our family, but what do you do when you have done that?  We will be discussing ways to find clues for you to go further.  Please bring your research with you, and your questions about how to do something.  If we can’t get it all answered in April we can cove more in June during our website review. 
Thank you to all of those that have renewed their membership and if you haven’t done so yet we hope you will.  We also hope to see you at a meeting.   Happy Hunting.

Respectfully,

Carma-Lu Thompson
