Fourth of July Special Meeting to Honor our Country! Jackie Jensen, Host

Mark your calendar for Monday, July 10, at 9 a.m. in the Eagle’s Nest Palm Room. All PC residents interested in genealogy at whatever level are welcome.

The first hour of the meeting, 9 to 10 a.m., is dedicated to tips and tricks presented by members: Jayne Parise and Kathy Koch about free databases regarding passenger departing ports.

11 a.m. to noon is the business meeting and time for you to meet your groups: Do you have a research question or need assistance in your research? Bring your laptop, your questions, and your curiosity, and let’s work and share together to move our family trees forward.

Special Interest Group (SIG) hosts are available to you as a benefit of membership! SIG group leaders are specialists in their area ranging from a new beginners genealogy group to researching Colonial America, Scotland, Canada, Germany/Poland, and DNA.
