Genealogy Family tree logo

Gene Gyger
Anyone interested in doing his/her family history can join the Genealogy SIG to discover how family history records can be kept easily using various software programs. The word genealogy is derived from the Greek and means the study of family history and descent. Genealogies, or the recorded histories of the descent of a person or family from their ancestors, are also often referred to as family trees or sometimes as lineages or pedigrees. This Special Interest Group meets to develop knowledge of genealogy and to exchange information about how to use Family Tree Maker software. If you are interested in tracing your roots, join us at these meetings.
