Jacquie Beveridge did a great job at last night’s SGS meeting with introducing us to the many features of Facebook, including genealogy groups and other links which can be found at that site. During the presentation, there was interest among several members on how to add a “favorite” page/group to a Facebook home page. As promised, Jacquie has provided the instructions HERE. Throughout the evening, we visited and discussed a number of websites. Click a title below to re-visit those sites.

There was also some discussion last night on how to join your Haplogroup. Karen Childs contributes this information:
1 – Google Haplogroup******** (*add your personal haplogroup )
2 – When the page comes up there will be the word ‘ JOIN.’
Click on it and join the group.
‘Why join? Because there is a ton of information on your haplogroup to study and learn.’ – Karen
There is sure to be additional information on this at next month’s DNA presentation by Kevin Mittge.
