What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in learning more about genealogy and family history research. Beginner, intermediate, and professional researchers are welcome. We'll mostly get together to share brief how-to presentations covering online resources (e.g., FamilySearch, Ancestry), genealogy software, local offline resources, and research techniques. We'll also focus on helping each other with our research challenges.


Do you want to start researching your family's history, but have no idea how to get started? Are you already working on your family tree, but could use some help and motivation? Or are you completely obsessed with your genealogy... but have no one in your life to talk to and brainstorm about it?
