Coming Up:

 THIS MONTH:
April 19, 2019 -  Our speaker this month is Ralph Severson, Director of the Oakland FamilySearch Library, whose talk is titled "Sleuthing for Sources Using FamilySearch.”  Most genealogists are familiar with the "Search" function on FamilySearch, but that merely scratches the surface of what a researcher can find on FamilySearch. Mr. Severson will discuss using books, posted genealogies, the Family History Library catalog, and Research Wiki to locate less obvious sources.

May 17                   Dawn Kosmakos, DNA Genetic Genealogist- "How I Solve Unknown Parent Searches"
June 21                   Lisa Lisson (webinar)- "Researching Common Surname Ancestors"
