PGS Events for the Week of 12 - 18 July

Monday, 13-Jul-2015 at 10:00 AM--Genealogical Proof--This class explains how to evaluate the evidence we collect as we build our family trees. Some sources are more reliable, some records bring us closer to the actual event, and some information is more “on point.” How do we rank all of this as we try to assemble genealogical “truth”? The class uses the “Genealogical Proof Standard” as the guide. Summers, Local History Room, Largo Library.

Friday, 17-Jul-2015 at 10:30 AM--German Genealogy Interest Group--A special Interest Group presentation for novice learners seeking basic help with their German ancestry. The class primarily gives basic instruction on how to find the actual birthplace and other key facts that are essential for German family history research. Topics include published resources that are available in the U.S. and U.S. websites used to aid in German genealogy. Helpful hints with surnames, name-places and the German calendar will be shared also. Commons, Local History Room, Largo Library.

Saturday, 18 Jul 2015--NO COMPUTER INTEREST GROUP MEETING THIS MONTH-due to the field trip to the Family History Library--information below:

This summer's PGS Field Trip will take us to our local LDS Family History Center.  LDS genealogy volunteers will give us a tour of the Center and demonstrate its resources and how to use them.  Then they will stand ready to help us use those resources to work on our own research.  So bring your genealogy questions and perhaps you will be able to find and order the microfilm containing that elusive document you have been hunting.
