OGS Kingston and Quinte Branch 15 February Meetings

The next Kingston Branch meeting is the occasion for the Branch AGM after which members of the Board will talk about Maximizing your OGS Membership.

The 9:30 am educational session will be given by Ron Mann on “Understanding basic DNA information.”

Visitors are welcome to join the event in the Sir John A. Macdonald Room at the Seniors Centre East, 56 Francis Street, Kingston ON.

It's a bit over 100 km on the 402 to Trenton, time enough to drive there following the Kingston meeting for the 1 pm start of the Quinte Branch meeting.

Nick Post will be explaining The Ins and Outs of FamilySearch —  how FamilySearch came about and the benefits of using it. He will take the group through signing in to the program and discuss the different areas within the site; providing examples from his own Family Tree. Nick will also outline partnerships with other Family History sites, indexing and additional programs. Finally, he will discuss updates and future changes coming to FamilySearch. He is a “Temple and Family History Consultant” at the Oshawa Stake Family History Library.

The venue is Quinte West Public Library, 7 Creswell Drive, Trenton ON.
