Wednesday, May 10, 11 a.m. & 7 p.m.: “Tips & Talk” at the Oakland FamilySearch Center. Preregistration requested. This week: Kim Miller discusses “The Family History Guide.” If you aren’t familiar with The Family History Guide website, you are missing out on valuable information to help you in your research. This FREE genealogy learning website offers a guide to using FamilySearch, Ancestry, My Heritage and Find My Past. In addition, you will learn how to use The Family History Guide’s learning modules to more effectively research in different states, countries and ethnicities. The Family History Guide works hand in hand with FamilySearch’s Research Wiki but offers more depth and breadth in many areas. Feel free to bring a lunch and hang out afterwards to get help with your genealogy and/or use the library’s many resources. Free.

Wednesday, May 10, 6:30 p.m.: CGS Members’ Roundtable. This monthly chat allows members to share their questions and ideas and get to know one another. Particularly for new and remote members, this will be an opportunity to meet and feel part of the CGS community. Meets via Zoom. Contact Lisa Gorrell or Jacqueline Henderson for more information. Free.

Saturday, May 13, 10 a.m.: Monthly Board Meeting. All are welcome to attend, either via Zoom or in person at the PGA Design Building. Free.

Saturday, May 13, 1 p.m.: Excel for Genealogy Workshop. Stewart Traiman leads this workshop on using spreadsheets to organize your genealogy research.
