WELCOME TO THE 2014 SEASON

Program Dates

January - No Meeting

February 17th – A video from the popular presenter: The Barefoot Genealogist, Crista Cowan. The 30 minutes video, entitled "Approach Your Family History Research Like A Pro", will be followed by a Q/A session on the material we just viewed, or any other questions attendees would like to ask.

March 17th – Marilyn Cocchiola Holt returns for her annual visit to our society. Marilyn is our most popular presenter each year. This year’s topic is “Researching Your Ancestors in Europe”, one of our top requested topics.

April 21st - Jay Shock will speak on “Church and Cemetery Records: A Complement to Online Research”.

May 19th - Diane Klinefelter is a professional genealogist, author and historian specializing in military records. She will give a talk on "Finding the Veterans in Your Family." Because military records often hold such rich and detailed information, it is no wonder genealogists want to look for all the family members who served in our armed forces. This talk will provide tips on identifying ancestors that served, where to find the records and what genealogical information can be gained from them.

September 15 - The September meeting will be a presentation by Jim Stuber. He will show how he did the research to provide one of our members new information on their ancestors. See an actual demonstration of how the wealth of information from familysearch.org, ancestry.com and google.com make genealogy research easier than ever before.

October 20 - DNA testing and genealogy research

November 17 - Elissa Scalise Powell, well known genealogy researcher and presenter in Western Pennsylvania will discuss:  “What's a Prothonotary?: Your Guide to Pennsylvania Court House Records”

December 15th - No Meeting in December
