This is with the exception of the month of December, which is when we have our annual membership banquet. Our meetings are open to the public and generally include a main presentation or a genealogical class in order to help further family history research.

Now that the holidays are behind us, let us get back to working on our family trees.  Come with questions and/or brick walls for discussion. Everett Thompson will also talk about and demonstrate the availability of a free Registered Guest membership at Ancestry.com. It will allow people who are building their trees on their computers using such things as Family Tree Maker to upload their trees to Ancestry.com and thereby have them saved for usage by present and future genealogist. The idea is to prevent all of their work from being lost when they die.

Come join us for coffee & donuts at the South Regional Library on Johnston St. Remember to bring your questions.
