Here are the details of our upcoming program for Tuesday evening, January 8, 2013:
The Genealogy program will be held on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 7:30 PM in the 2nd floor Classroom. The guest speaker for the evening will be Caron Primas Brennan. Caron will present a program titled “Where Did I Put Great-Grandpa? – Organizing for Genealogists”.
Organization is one of the most important aspects of your genealogical research. Don’t frustrate yourself because you cannot find what you need! Organize your materials!
Caron loves history, biography, puzzles and a good mystery, which makes her perfectly suited to genealogy research! She has been researching her family history since a 6th grade school project got her interested. She has been using the computer and internet since before it was “cool”. She uses The Master Genealogist as her primary software and also uses Family Tree Maker and Ancestry to share with others in her family. Caron’s only vice is genealogy research so she has subscriptions to many resources including Ancestry.com, Genealogybank.com, NEGHS, Footnote, and Godfrey Memorial Library. She belongs to several local genealogy groups and is the Webmaster and Newsletter Publisher for CAGGNI (www.caggni.org).
The doors to the room will open at approximately 7 PM so participants can pick up any handouts, review books and journals and interact with other participants. Tony Kierna, the STDL genealogist, will start the program at 7:30. Introductions of new participants will occur as well as a brief review of handouts and genealogical matters. It is expected that the guest speaker’s presentation will start at around 7:45-8:00 PM. We will end the session by 9:30 PM.
