Our main purpose is Education.
It is our desire to create, foster, and maintain interest in genealogical research.
Our goals are to:
* schedule classes so people of all ages can learn how to research
* offer a support system for beginners to help them along the way
* have our members participate by sharing their knowledge
* promote speakers that can teach us new methods and ideas
We share this information with others at meetings, seminars, and through our publications.
