What can a Timeline Tell about Your Ancestors?
Creating a timeline of your ancestors can help you
learn a lot about them -- track their life events and migration across
the country as well as the historical events that affected their lives.
Valo Jones will present the program and lead a discussion on timelines.
Researchers interested in exploring the use of DNA testing and
interpreting test results are invited to stay following the February
21 meeting for a brief informal mini-workshop on using the
website, looking at actual test results and how to sort matches that are
in common with another match. We will also review how to create
and upload a GEDCOM file to a website.
Inclement weather policy: If either the Nevada or the El
Dorado Springs schools are closed, there will NOT be a genealogy
meeting. Please note that the Nevada Public Library will be closed
if the Nevada Schools are closed due to weather.
Each month the genealogy society presents
information that will help with your research. Support your local
society with your presence at meetings and with your annual membership.
The Nevada Library Genealogy Department is open to researchers during
all regular Library hours. Wi-fi is available if you bring your
personal device. Two computers in the Genealogy Dept. are
available exclusively for genealogy research. A $25 12-month

of Nevada, or a free limited guest pass can be obtained each month.
