President's Message

The 2020-2021 KVGS year is here!  Programs are virtual using the Zoom platform. 
Forty-four people attended the webinar January 18 by Judy Russell.  One of our own, Janine Cotugno, will present the Skills Session January 25.  Members will receive a registration email a few days before the event.  Reply to that invitation and a confirmation email with the link to join will be emailed to you immediately.  Click on the link to join just before the meeting start time.
Did you make a genealogy resolution for 2021?  These snowy, cold days are a great time to plan your year's genealogy activities.  I hope to atain at least one or two of my genealogy goals.  One goal is to attend the Rootetech conference the end of February.  It will be virtual and FREE.  Register to attend at https://www.rootstech.org/.
"See" you at the meetings.
Jan Wright, President
