NeWGS (Northeast Washington Genealogical Society)
Our next meetings will be on Wednesday, October 8th, 2014. The morning Computer Interest Group will meet in the basement meeting room of the LDS church on Juniper Street in Colville at 10:30am. This is a new location for our CIG meetings. John WIlson is coming from Spokane to give us a demonstration on the popular genealogy program, RootsMagic.
We will take a break for lunch and then meet again at for our general meeting in the same location. Due to difficulty in scheduling we will not be listening to a "live" webinar. Instead we will listen and view a pre-recorded webinar presented by Geoff Rasmussen from Legacy Family Tree. His subject will be the value of timelines in genealogy research. While he will be demonstrating the Legacy program's version of a timeline all that he teaches can be accomplished in any of the popular genealogy programs as well as the old-fashioned style of pen and paper or computer. I have personally listened to his webinar and learned quite a few valuable tips. We hope you will join us. You will be pleased with the ample parking at the church and friendly atmosphere.

CLOVER ISLAND INN, 435 Clover Island Drive, Kennewick
All members and guests are invited to have dinner together at 5:30 PM
in the Captain’s Quarters, 4th Floor of the Inn. The meeting follows at 7:00 PM
PROGRAM SPEAKER: STAN WILLS, SONS OF AMERICAN REVOLUTION
The program will include talks by Stan Wills, and possibly others from the local chapter of the Sons of American Revolution, about the Revolutionary War. They also will be wearing authentic replicas of Revolutionary War uniforms. And if you are a male and your ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, they will have information on how you can join the Sons of American Revolution (SAR). It should be a great program for both history buffs and genealogists.
An additional item of interest at the meeting will be a raffle of genealogical-related items.
