These sessions are dedicated research time for members with one-on-one assistance.
So BYOR – Bring Your Own Research and work with others to discover your elusive ancestors. Also, bring your laptop or mobile device. Free public WiFi is available inside the library.

This is a great opportunity for assistance on issues such as:

  • Suggestions for searching family in a specific locale
  • Using FamilySearch or Ancestry to find records, build trees, attach supporting records and photos
  • Using specific genealogy software to organize your research
  • Download/upload family, GEDCOM, or DNA information.
  • Which DNA test to take or interpreting DNA test results
  • Formatting assistance in OpenOffice or Word for self-publishing
  • Digitize your records, photos, and memorabilia

If you did not make last month’s general meeting, come get a recap of the announcements and presentation information at these sessions as well.
