Program Information:
The topic for the monthly meeting will be “Using WikiTree – the Global Tree to Search for Your Ancestors!” presented by Mags Gaulden.

June’s program explains how WikiTree can help you in your genealogical research. Starting with you, adding your direct family lines and connecting to existing ancestors’ profiles. WikiTree is a global family tree with one profile per person who ever lived. It is an incredible tree with an overwhelming amount of information and cross-referencing and database and DNA features and… Whatever your family lines are, we will cover how to connect your lines and connect to some of the features that make WikiTree what it is.
