    BOTH Via Zoom AND In-Person at the

    Roadrunner Room - Thomas Branigan Memorial Library

    Genealogy Do-Over™:

    A Year of Learning from My Mistakes!

    Presented by Thomas MacEntee

    It isn’t often that we get a “do-over” when it comes to stuff that matters in life. When you first got started researching your family history, did you do some things that now are just plain “embarrassing” such as name collecting, not citing sources and more? Well now there’s hope since genealogists from beginner to advanced are employing new research methodologies and documentation practices.

    Follow genealogist Thomas MacEntee as he basically starts his genealogy research from scratch but includes sound research practices and methodologies as well as new templates, tools, and the latest technology for better family history research.

    The meeting will be held June 12, beginning at 2 pm MDT at the Branigan Memorial Library in the Roadrunner Room and will also be available via Zoom.

    DACGS members will receive an invitation via email that will include the Zoom link.

    For Non-DACGS members:  To join via Zoom, send an email request, including your name and telephone number, to: dacgslc@gmail.com.  The request, with your name and phone number, must be received two (2) days prior to the meeting.
