May Morning Meeting and More

Thanks to our faithful members for supporting our member sharing programs. We had 43 in attendance at our June morning meeting yesterday. Hopefully, each person learned something to take home and use in their research.
The program was presented by a panel make up of Suzanne Kovak, Carol Blohm and me. The topic: What We Learned at Recent Conferences: Fox Valley, Dupage, and Illinois State Genealogical Societies. Each of us spoke about a session or two we had attended and shared some of the great information we made available to us there.
Even when you attend a conference, you can’t go to all the sessions – unless there is only one speaker. It was very enlightening to hear about talks I wasn’t able to hear. We were able to pass along some of the tips and knowledge we picked up along the way.
During our Q&A segment, Judy VanDusen reminded everyone that these conferences are great places to shop!! It’s a chance to see a number of vendors all in one place; a rare opportunity.
I hope to see everyone at the June evening meeting on the 17th when Steve Szabados presents Write your Family History. Steve will share his method of organizing his research into readable documents so everyone can understand and enjoy reading about their heritage.
Also, don’t forget the Computer Interest Group will meet at 9:00 on Thursday, June 10. This month will be looking at Illinois online research sites.
