Genealogy Brain Trust 3rd Saturday: Discussion Topic: Organization  (Education)
12:00 pm to 3:00 pm
CCGS Research Center, 402 E. Lauridsen Blvd, Port Angeles

Genealogy Brain Trust – Discussion Topic: Organization (Topics will change monthly.) 

As followup to the presentation at the monthly meeting, the topic this month is “Organization.” Our methods of organizing change as our genealogy research progresses. Sometimes the change breaks through a brick wall and sometimes it gets us motivated again. Members are encouraged to bring examples of how they organize their genealogy, and discuss what has worked, what has changed, and what things can be incorporated from other members or the presentation. Coordinated by Nona Halvorsen, Education Coordinator, past coordinator of the Writers Group, and long-time CCGS member.

(Our no fee events are open to the public. Donations gratefully accepted or affordable annual membership.)

Coordinated by Nona Halvorsen, Education Coordinator, past coordinator of the Writers Group, and long-time CCGS member. (Our no fee events are open to the public.

The FamilySearch wiki is a marvelous resource for genealogists.  It contains links to databases and online resources, as well as research training guidance.  There you will also find location specific pages, and more!  We will take an in-depth look at many of the features of the Wiki.  We'll follow a path from one page to another, and into the World Wide Web yo discover how this vast site can make a difference in our research.  We will have some discussion time at the end, so bring your FamilySearch questions.

She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and the consulting genealogist for Traditions of the Ancestors (TOTA).
