"To support the study of family genealogy by Oakmont residents"

NEXT MEETING September 27 at 1 PM on Zoom

Selecting a Family Tree Program

and Connecting to Hints from Ancestry and FamilySearch

Our next club meeting will be September 27 at 1 PM. We had hoped this meeting with be live in East Rec, but the level of COVID transmission in the County has meant we’ll only have a Zoom meeting.

This meeting will combine two topics. It will primarily focus on how to pick a program to keep your family tree information and connect to hints from a number of genealogy programs, primarily Ancestry and FamilySearch. Even if you’re an experienced genealogist, you can expand your information by using the links with Ancestry and FamilySearch.

The meeting will also review why the location of events is important and why each event needs to be recorded in the proper location.

Here’s the Zoom link:

When you sign in, there will be a message asking you to allow the host to unmute you. Please indicate that you will allow this as it will make our meetings go more quickly.

The September 27 meeting will be devoted to the topic of Researching the Places your Ancestors Lived. Most data is kept in the location where the event occurred, so it is critical to have an understanding how to research locations.
