President's Message

Happy New Year!  I hope you have a few genealogy goals for the new year.  The January 21, 2019, program at 7:00 pm will be Dr. Sharon Carlson of the WMU Archives and Regional History Center.  In addition to highlighting the variety of resources at the Archives and how to access them, Dr. Carlson will also speak about the project KVGS is undertaking at the Archives to re-organize the KVGS materials housed there.  The chair of that project, Carol Baker, would be happy to have KVGS members involved.
The Skills Session at 6:15 will be "Scanning and Snipping with your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Don't forget the annual bus trip to the Fort Wayne, IN, library on Saturday, March 23.  The genealogy collection there is outstanding, second best only to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The registration form is available on this website under RESEARCH TRIPS in the left-hand panel.  The registration form is also available in the January KVGS Heritage newsletter.
Happy researching and completing your 2019 genealogy goals.
Jan Wright
