SEPT. 14: NORTHEAST WASHINGTON GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY
The next Northeast Washington Genealogical Society meetings are on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 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.
This month will be Part Two of our focus on organizing your genealogy research. This month’s meeting will focus on RootsMagic, a popular genealogy program used by many. Susan Dechant, President of NeWGS, will demonstrate some of the most well-like features of this program.
Coming soon, RootsMagic will have the ability to synchronize with the Ancestry.com Tree you may have created or if you have a subscription to Ancestry.com you might be considering.
We will take a lunch break at noon and then meet again in the LDS Lower Meeting Room at 1:30 p.m.
“Genealogy Do-Over” is a scary thought but, then again, maybe it’s just what we need to consider.
Norma Yost, NeWGS Librarian and presenter extraordinaire, will talk to us about this edgy idea presented in Thomas McEntee’s new book Genealogy Do-Over.
Here is the short summary by Thomas McEntee of Genealogy Do-Over: I set aside everything* related to my genealogy research including notebooks, papers, and even digitized files and my genealogy database files and START OVER. I’m hitting the reset button. I’m allowing myself to have a do-over! (*certain items such as vital records ordered and paid for or research gathered on long-distance trips can be retained).
Are you ready to open your mind to new possibilities? Come join us and learn.
All visitors are welcome. You do not need to be a member to attend the Northeast Washington Genealogical Society’s meetings.
SEPT. 19: NORTH EASTERN WASHINGTON HUMAN SOCIETY
The next meeting of the North Eastern WA Humane Society will be on Monday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m. at the Pizza Factory in Suncrest.
Items to be discussed are the Spay/Neuter Partnership with the Spokane Humane Society and Bake Sale Fundraiser to be held in December. New members are always welcome!
Volunteers for transport, fostering and baking are encouraged to contact Becky Washington, Secretary of NEWHS.
NEWHS started its partnership with the SHS in May, offering transport for Stevens County residents wishing to take advantage of $40 spays and neuters at the SHS Clinic.
This program has been successful in getting over 30 dogs spayed or neutered, so far.
The two transport dates in September are full, with 10 dogs scheduled each day. Oct. 12 and Oct. 18 dates are also filling fast. To schedule your dog, call 509-563-4040, and a representative will contact you.
NEWHS officers are also available for informational/educational presentations. If your group would like to schedule a presentation, use the previously mentioned contact number to reach President Brian Ferrante, or Secretary Becky Washington.
It is the goal of NEWHS to offer shelter and care of animals in need in Stevens County —eventually. Until a shelter facility has been realized, NEWHS is happy to assist with other services and programs. To find out more, please visit our Facebook page or website, www/newhumane.org.
