2017-2018 Programs and Events

We meet on the second Sunday of the month (unless noted) in the Carlos Meeting Room of the Northville District Library (212 W. Cady Street, 248-349-3020).

NOTE: The Roundtables this year will be audience participation. Come prepared to share. Toys and Tools for instance: We will discuss things like hardware and software that you use for genealogy. You might want to bring a portable scanner to demonstrate or show an app that is useful. For other topics you could share your experience or come prepared with questions or websites.

Notice that we have two DNA programs scheduled.  The first one in November will cover the basics and compare pros and cons of different tests.  The second one in April will address what to do with your results once you get them.
