Just wanted to take a minute to post a "thank you" to all our new members - we are thrilled you have decided to join us! Also, a big thanks to our long-standing members who have supported D.I.R.T. through its first year and helped it grow.
We will be a year old next month and it is wonderful to have the chance to work with a group of people who are excited about family history and digging into their roots.
We have had a few suggestions going forward:
- A number of you have asked to learn more about using Evernote for genealogy. We will work on putting together a presentation.
- There has been a request for a second cemetery walk field trip (and we haven't even done the first one!). This would be a great trip to do in the Spring of 2016.
- Another trip to the Family History Library? Absolutely.
- There has been a rumor that some are thinking about a field trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the National Archives, the Library of Congress and other repositories of ancestral records. No reason why we can't start talking about that as well.
We welcome your suggestions, ideas, comments and contributions. This is YOUR group. We look forward to working with all of you in the coming year to explore more of the world of genealogy and hopefully, help everyone move forward with their research.
Linda and Denise
