President's Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 program year! Our September program at 7:00 pm will be Deb Havens and her sister Lynette Doele.  While sorting through their deceased grandfather's papers, they discovered he had married in Europe and left the bride there when he returned to the US, married, and raised a family here.  Come hear how the sisters conducted research in Europe to determine what happened.
 
The main program will be preceded by a skills session at 6:15 pm, DNA Basics by Cheryl Cavalear.
 
If you are new to genealogy, check out the beginning genealogy class offered this October and November.  It is listed on the EVENTS PAGE.
 
And, lastly, it is membership renewal time.  The KVGS year is July 1 - June 30.  You can renew on the KVGS website, at the next meeting, or with the membership form which was in the June newsletter. Thanks to those of you who have already renewed your membership.
