10:30 am – 11:45 am   The General Membership Meeting.
A short meeting will be held to conduct society business.

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
      Program: “Genealogy Research Tips and Hints”
      Speaker:  Liz Tice & Doug Crosby

   Our May program began a three-part methodology series with the New England Historic Genealogical Society’s webinar “Creating a Research Plan”. 

  In June Liz and Doug will be sharing “Research Tips and Hints”, a grab bag of suggestions for working with a variety of web sites, programs, and research methods! We’ll include hints for using Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org, Newspapers.com, Google searching and others. Suggestions from those attending will be welcomed.

  In July we will be looking for each of you to participate in bringing the May/June information and YOUR Expertise together for everyone’s benefit. Divided into several workgroups, we will all be looking for the answer to the same question. Each team will prepare a research plan and work toward the answer in a brief time of actual research. Then we’ll discuss what we tried – what worked, what didn’t-- and why.

               Our programs are always open to the public.
