Genealogy Research Disaster Plan


Summer Genealogy Discussion Sessions


We are offering monthly round table discussion sessions on genealogy topics. These sessions meet on the second Monday of each month at the Mid-County Regional Library from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Plan to attend and keep your genealogy projects active throughout the summer.
No reservations are needed, just show up and bring your questions or problems to the group.
Who knows, someone may be able to offer some assistance or a suggestion that makes a big difference.
We will have available power strips  so you can plug in your laptops. Please contact Jim Maloney at maloneyj6@gmail.com if you can volunteer as an assistant for one of the dates below.

Tips & Tricks
Do your genealogy to learn about your family and your place in that family, to leave a legacy for your children and grandchildren and to research and trace our family's medical history.

A generation is 22-25 years for a man and 18-23 years for a woman.

When taking notes, use standard size paper, one surname per page. Record the source and identifying information so you can find it again, and the date and place you found info (volume and page). Use only accepted abbreviations (no homespun stuff). Understand basic terminology.
