The Computer Genealogy Group meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month.
This is not a class but rather a group of individuals who use each other as sounding boards to learn about new places to search for information and how to use existing databases. We often have a computer projected on a screen so that individuals can observe how a website works or where things are located.
Participants are encouraged to bring a basic notebook, tablet or laptop to use in their own searches or samplings of sites. Though the library does not have a copy of Ancestry for Library use, many members are familiar with the site, and can bring up their own accounts to display results. As parts of Ancestry are free with registration, we do recommend that searchers try to see what they can find on Ancestry. Contact Marty Hubbard with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
