MCGS COMPUTER INTEREST GROUP MEETING

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, March 21, 2009 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm - PLEASE NOTE extra hour added for this presentation.

Topic: Beginning Computer Genealogy - If you are interested in family history and genealogy, this session will help you get started by introducing you to data that can be found on the internet. You don't have to be a computer expert or even own a computer. Local libraries and Family History Centers can provide free access. Presented by John Klingel.

The internet is a rich source of info. Discover your ancestors, meet relatives you didn't know you had, find what ships brought them to America (and see pictures of the actual ships), and trace your ancestors back to their native countries. And these are only a few of the things you can do on the internet. We'll introduce you to the best internet sites and show you how to search for information. You'll find how easy it is to trace ancestors and discover the fun and excitement of uncovering your roots.

Location: Villa Marin, 100 Thorndale Drive, San Rafael - The Meeting will be held in the Auditorium, which is to the left and down the hall from the entrance.

Villa Marin has wireless Internet access! Be sure to bring your laptop computer and wireless network card so you can follow along with the presentation.

Contact Gene Pennington (webmaster@maringensoc.org) if you need more information.

These meetings are free to the public.
