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, February 20th, 10:00 am, via Zoom.

February topic: website it a staple for many genealogists, combining powerful search tools, a huge database of indexed documents, an intuitive interface to build your family tree, and ties to the AncestryDNA data.  Join us as Gail Colby gives an overview of this website while showing us many new features they have added in the past year. 

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