Genealogy is fun.  
It's the thrill of the hunt.  The joy of discovery.   
 
Join us. All experience levels welcome.

October Meet-Up & 2018-2019 Kick-Off!

Welcome Back! 
Saturday, 13 October at 10:30 
Leesburg Public Library (Meeting Room A)
 
We're kicking off our 2018-2019 season with a mini "Show and Tell" and social meet-up.  
Share your summer genealogy highlights!  Did you visit a cemetery?  Break down a brick wall?  Jump into the DNA testing pool? Discover a new genealogy website or tech tool?  Add a major branch to your tree?  
(We promise not to pass the microphone to anyone who doesn't want it!)
 
Afterwards, we'll announce some upcoming programs and events.
Then it's light refreshments and social time.  Mingle. Reconnect. Catch-up. Make a new member feel welcome.  
 
Our Special Interests Groups (SIGs) are starting back up too. (Free and open to the public)
 
DNA SIG (Special Interest Group):   9:15-10:15 in Meeting Room A.  
(This group discusses DNA-related genealogy topics. New attendees welcome.)
 
WIKITREE SIG:  1:00 - 3:00m in the Library's Tech Room.  
(This group is for users of WikiTree, the world's free, online, collabrative family tree.)
 
GENTECH SIG: Will meet the first Saturday of the month at 9:30, begining 1 Dec.
(This group discusses various tech tools we can use for genealogy.)
