SIG Information for QCS members

Genealogy SIG

Len Stevens leads the Genealogy SIG, one of the QCS's more popular groups. This SIG shares information, ideas and software news of the Genealogical world. Once again, they emphasize and discuss the free software available. It is a good place to begin.

Discussion topics include: collecting genealogical data, publishing data in book form, genealogical photography. Often times special guest speakers from the area will be on hand to speak about various points of ancestry interest.

If you have a new found interest in your ancestors, and are wondering how to put your family history together, this is the SIG for you!

Check our monthly calendar to find the current meeting time and place of this SIG.
