Our Next Meeting is November 19th, 2016

Ladies First: Finding Your Female Ancestors
Lisa Alzo (pre-recorded webinar)

It’s no secret that following the female lines in your family tree can often be a frustrating process. Most historical records were created for or about men. Men controlled the government and ran most businesses. Property was listed under a man’s name, and it was the male’s surname that carried to the next generation. But while looking for the ladies can be challenging, it’s not impossible. There’s no shortage of available resources to help trace your maternal ancestry—you just need to know where to look!


USER GROUPS: There will be two user groups for November.
Family Tree Maker - and - RootsMagic with TMG


Afternoon Computer Fundamentals
Research Starting from Scratch.
Jean Hoffman
You found a new person in the family to research, or a new location where family lived. What are your first steps in doing new research? Place and time will make a big difference, but some starting points will be the same.
