Members enjoy a pre-meeting gathering starting from 6:15pm for open discussion. Share tips, information, problems and solutions with people researching in the same regions. There are table tents available to pick up as you sign in.  There are all sorts of topics for you to choose from and then place it on your table and let others join you that are interested in that topic.

General meeting begins at 7pm. We welcome & introduce our guests and first time members. Society and member announcements are next. Then on to the Topic for the evening...........  we generally adjourn between 8-8:30pm.

AND the topic is Online Newspapers:
Newspapers can provide information about births, deaths, marriages, moves, business, naturalizations, court cases, and more. The Family History Library (FHL) Portal at the FamilySearch Centers and Libraries provides free access to several newspaper subscription sites. This class gives an overview of what is available and techniques to help improve your chances of finding information about your relatives.
