A note from the Genealogy Interest Group:

Because it appears that the COVID-19 pandemic will not be ending anytime soon and public meeting rooms have not yet reopened at our preferred sites, we are currently not holding Genealogy Interest Group meetings. We will reassess the possibilities as we are able.  

We will pass along any learning opportunities and tips as we become aware of them.  We are missing all of you...stay safe.
