Beginners SIG
Neal Scott, Coordinator

    We all have to start somewhere, and the Beginners SIG (Special Interest Group) is a new group for WHAGS members who aren't experts (yet) to meet, discuss, and learn about the basics of genealogy and building your family tree. 

    Each month we'll cover a different topic and talk about it in easy-to-digest terms and language... even DNA!  Topics planned now include, Getting Started, DNA, Organizing All My Stuff, Organizing Digital Records, Software Packages, Genealogy Websites such as and Find-a-Grave, Archives and Libraries, and more.

    Each month will also include an open Q&A session to help you with your beginners questions.

Next meeting:  Tuesday, May 28th, 10:00 am, via Zoom.

   Due to technical difficulties with the guest speaker, we have rescheduled the meeting for this coming Tuesday, May 28th.

May topic:  Wikitree​.  Join us for a presentation covering the Wikitree website, led by guest Eowyn Walker, Community Manager for Wikitree.  Eowyn will give us a tour of this free, single-tree, collaborative website that many are unfamiliar with, but all should visit and explore.

Please visit the Beginners SIG Page in the Members Only area for the Zoom link and copies of current and past handouts.
