2023 Programs Coming Soon
We are putting together the final pieces for a full year of programs for 2023. They will be conducted in the large conference rooms at the Advanced Learning Library on our normal 3rd Saturday of the month.
We will publish a schedule soon. The programs will consist of useful 'how-to' presentations along with our quarterly programs that highlight historical places, people, and events of the area.
As a reminder, the November 19th program is the last full meeting of the year. We avoid holiday conflicts so you can enjoy the season with no WGS demands. Some of the SIG groups may still meet, we will publish that soon.

January 21, 2023
Join us in January with a program that can benefit nearly every genealogist: Finding Your Ancestor When the Courthouse Has Burned. While everyone's courthouse may not have burned, the brick walls that a missing courthouse presents are similar to many other missing records you have faced.
This program is presented by Lisa Lisson. Lisa is the writer, educator and genealogy researcher behind Are You My Cousin? and believes researching your genealogy does not have to be overwhelming. All you need is a solid plan, a genealogy toolbox and the knowledge to use those tools. Lisa can be found online at LisaLisson.com, Facebook and Pinterest.
