    Where should I look for that record?

    Just about every researcher deals with the problem of finding an old town that has long-since disappeared from the map. Or, you have a known location that is not now in the same county that it was 100 or 200 years ago.  You may know the name of city or county where your ancestor lived.  However, the records for that person may be somewhere else.  Geographic lines change through time and the information may be recorded in a different place.

    Join P.Z. Horton, as we learn about geographic changes and hints on how to find those records.  We will explore a number of options and then zero in on the AniMap County Boundary software product, which could be of assistance and may provide solutions to these problems.

    FTM Special Interest Group - FTM SIG

    The focus of the Family Tree Maker Special Interest Group (FTM SIG) is to help members take advantage of the many features and options of the software program.  Your questions help drive the meetings, and we will be there to help each other.  Since the older versions of the software no longer synchronize with ancestry.com, we only concentrate on the latest FTM2017 version.  We will try to help with technical concerns, such as upgrading the software and exporting files.  Computers are welcome, and that way we can look at your specific issues. The FTM SIG will be facilitated by PZ Horton.

    DNA Special Interest Group - DNA SIG

    DNA testing is a tool that can be used, along with the paper trail of genealogical research, to open the door to new relatives, resolution of brick walls and confirmation of years of genealogical research. The goal of this group is to have members share successes and questions to increase the understanding of genetic genealogy within the group. Staying up to date on new tools used to analyze DNA results will also be a goal of this group. You are encouraged to bring your computers to allow specific issues to be more easily addressed. The DNA SIG will be facilitated by Deborah Atchley.

    Organizing Your Genealogy Records and Genealogical Wills

    Join us as Kim Richardson will be presenting.

    Organizing your files and records may seem overwhelming, but it does not have to be! In this presentation about sorting through all of those files, folders, photos, documents and data that are lying around in boxes and piles, we show you how to do it in a step by step, practical way. By incorporating simple changes in how you file your research, you can re-organize your files without a major overhaul. 

    You've done research and work for years.... but what will happen to it in the future? How can you ensure that your hard work is available for future researchers? How do you store your files? What about your online and electronic family trees and documents? This short presentation will show you exactly how to provide a future for your work. Tips for communicating your wishes along with sample wills are provided
