New SIG* Information

Irish Research Group

It's official - We have a new Special Interest Group devoted to Irish research. This group will meet every month at the County Library at 10:00 am. The purpose of this group is the advancement of their research in Irish Genealogy. Marilyn Fullam is the organizer and you can contact her for any questions at 588-9873.

Computer Tech & DNA Group

On November 13, the former Computer Tech group met and approved the re-forming of the group to include DNA research and discussions. Initially we will have an emphasis on DNA, but are open to discussions and or presentations on Technical issues as they arise. It was agreed that they would each purchase an excellent book on DNA research by Blaine Bettinger titled "Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy" and published by Family Tree. They will be discussing the first Chapter at the January meeting. It was also suggested by our money lady that we use our Amazon Smile account for the purchase! Just checked online prices and they have a very good Kindle edition with large diagrams for $9.90 and the paperback for $20.36.

What is "The Writer's Group?"

The Writers Group meets at noon on the even number months, except December, at the Tuolumne County library.

This is a casual group, who have formed to inspire one another in writing their family history. The meeting is conducted in a round table format with each member giving a status of their work. Some members have written several family stories, while others are searching for the best way to do theirs. Suggestions are given on such items as format, content, style and various types of printing and publishing.

The best part of coming is learning about the many different and interesting stories our members have to tell about their family.

There is a core group of members attending each meeting, although some people just come for one or two meetings looking for specific answers to their questions. Whether you want to come often or seldom, all are welcome. Since the meeting is at noon many people bring their lunch. Please feel free to join us.
