HCGS Sat 10 Sep 2011 Researching Maternal Ancestors

The September meeting of the Honolulu County Genealogical Society covered the topic of Finding Your Female Ancestors.  It was presented in a Webinar format courtesy of Legacy Family Tree. 
       Pictured here is Jim Deutsch discussing his great findings of his family while attending the IAJGS - International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies at Washington DC recently.
          Harriet Hoffman also discussed her trip there and the reception of her newly published book "Collect Writings"... of her grandfather - a translation from Yiddish to English.  She will discuss it further at the October meeting.
       The November meeting will be a workshop about various family tree software, so bring your laptops and questions... at least Family Tree Maker, Legacy, and Roots Magic will have their own groups of discussion and troubleshooting.
