President's Message

If you are able to attend the April 27 Family History SemInar in Lansing, it will be well worth your time.  There will be more than 40 classes throughout the day and registration is FREE.  Go to the website for details and registration information:http://lansingfhc.org/.
And it is membership renewal time.  The KVGS year is July 1 - June 30.  You can renew online at the KVGS website, at the next meetings, or with the membership form which will be in the May newsletter. Thanks to those of you who have already renewed your membership.  A few people joined or renewed as Selma gave her presentation at the April meeting about how to renew online.
The May program will be about using death and tax records in genealogy.  Jeff Mason of Lansing will be the speaker.  Hope to see you there.
