OCTOBER MEET-UP (WELCOME BACK!)

Join us on Saturday, 21 October as we kick-off our 2017-18 season with a great program. 
 
WikiTree: The World's Free, Collaborative, Online Family Tree
Over 426,000 genealogists world-wide are using DNA and traditional genealogical sources to create an accurate single family tree. You can use WikiTree as your primary online family tree or simply as another tool to help further your own family history research.
 
Our presenter is Debi Hoag, who holds a Leader role at WikiTree. She co-leads the Profile Improvement Project, an initiative to ensure accurate supporting documentation for WikiTree entries. She also serves on many of WikiTree's functional projects.
 
In addition to our featured presentation, we have some exciting announcements to share: a new membership benefit, Special Interest Group (SIG) initiatives, and a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Come reconnect with genealogy friends and welcome new members. 
 
Start time is 9:30am. Location is Meeting Room A of the Leesbug Public Library.


CONGRATULATIONS!

Kevin Arms, a librarian, archivist, and faculty member at Lake Sumter State College, has been awarded a much deserved scholarship by the Florida State Genealogical Society. Titled the Charlotte Reels Duvall/FSGS Librarian Scholarship, it is awarded to selected librarians to support their attendance at a genealogical conference or genealogical research institute. Congrats, Kevin!
 
Kinseekers thanks the FSGS for providing such a great opportunity for librarians to expand their genealogical education. Librarian Kevin Arms is a great supporter of our local genealogical community!
