The next Northeast Washington Genealogical Society meetings are on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016. The morning Computer Interest Group (CIG) will meet in the basement meeting room of the LDS Church on Juniper Street in Colville at 10:30 a.m. Entry is located at the back of the building. The building is located one block east of the South Main Restaurant on Hwy 395.
Vice-President Karen Struve will take a new approach for beginning online genealogy research. This month the focus will be on starting from scratch. She will share her methodology for creating a tribute to a young man whose life was tragically cut short.
We will take a lunch break at noon and then meet again in the LDS Lower Meeting Room at 1:30 p.m.
It’s time to re-think those brick walls that keep all of us from making progress on our genealogy research. Perhaps the answer is right there in your old research that you set aside so long ago.
Susan Dechant, President of NeWGS will lead the discussion about those walls as well as offer up some tips and tricks to help us break them down or, maybe, just move on and around the walls.
All visitors are welcome. You do not need to be a member to attend the Northeast Washington Genealogical Society’s meetings.
