Title:  Summer Stories

Speakers:  Everyone!

Our annual Summer Stories meeting has become one of our favorite events. Since many of us are in families who are not enthusiastic about family history research, we look forward to this time to tell our stories, listen, encourage, help, rejoice, or sympathize with each other. It’s also the perfect time and place to share ideas for future AGS programs. For this meeting, we circle up in small groups that allow everyone to tell about their recent genealogical adventures. Don’t miss it!
Bring your favorite finger food or snack to share after the meeting. Coffee, tea, and water will be provided.

Title:  Analyzing and Organizing Your DNA Matches

Speaker:  Lark Robart, Genealogist and DNA researcher

Are you overwhelmed, confused, or bemused by DNA? Does your brain shut down when you hear the terms “Quick & Dirty Trees”, “WATO”, and “AutoClustering”? Help is here! This presentation by AGS member Lark Robart will show you a way through the jargon to a useful understanding of your DNA matches. You could be among the many happy people who have broken through their brick walls and now celebrate their “Dee-ox-e-ribboN-ukelele Acid"!!

Speakers:  Everyone!

Our annual holiday party is a great time of fellowship as members bring heirlooms or items of genealogical interest and tell of their history or special meaning. Members are also invited to bring a holiday dish to share during the party time. We love to end the year on a high note!
