The RootsMagic User Group meets the third Monday of each month to learn how to use the RootsMagic software to organize genealogy data in a way that each person finds useful. They discuss ways to attach digital images to ancestors and record information in a way that will help find out more about families. They also learn how to make information available in reports and charts that can be shared with others.

The Valley Clan Diggers meets at a varying time each month. This group meets in different members’ home to share their genealogical pursuits. The purpose and goals of the group are to share current projects, help each other with ancestral “dead ends” car-pool to workshops and take occasional field trips.

The Ancestry Group (TAG) meets the second Thursday of each month from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Shadle Park Library, 2111 W Wellesley Ave. TAG is a forum for all things  Ancestry is always changing and the group is able to share these changes.  There is no single “expert” to present and answer all questions.  If someone in the group is unable to answer a question, another member might look it up on their laptop.  The terms “shaky leaf”, “DNA”, “collaboration”, and “member profile” are common to all. Since Ancestry continues to make changes, the TAG group always has something new to learn. So the next time you see an ad on television about Ancestry or have subscribed to and want more information, consider attending the FREE TAG meetings.
