Of Genealogy Interest and Events

G-DontMissThisThe March SGS monthly meeting will feature guest speaker Howard Crombie, with a presentation on DNA.  A good opportunity to bring your questions!

VIDEOS from ROOTSTECH 2017
The recent RootsTech Conference in Salt Lake City featured sessions on DNA, Research Tools, Stories, and so much more. View the many topics covered in the four day event  HERE.  Really worth checking out – not sure how long these videos will be available.

SGS member Karen Childs shares a site for warships of the American Revolution. “This site is a collection of information about the various aspects of the American War of Independence, the AWI, fought between 1775 and 1783. This conflict is alternately known as the American Revolution, the American Revolutionary War, or, to older folks, simply as the Revolutionary War.”  View it HERE.
