President's Message

Dear Members and Friends of KVGS,
The 61st year of KVGS begins September 17 at the Portage District Library.  At the 6:15 pm Skills Session, Kristi Burns will compare and contrast several cloud storage sites to backup your genealogy data. The main program will follow a brief business meeting at 7:00 pm.  Shirley Gage Hodges will speak about emigration and immigration between Canada and Michigan.  Many Michigan ancestors came through Canada to settle here.
Th program committee has the year's programs scheduled.  They are listed on the Events page of the website.
The website committee is scheduling webinars for this fall.  Those are also listed on the Events page of the website.
Hope to see you at one – or all – of these events.
