Kiwanis Learns About Genealogy

Kiwanians Les Michie, Jeanine Michie and Dr. Jerry Williams shared a very informative program about genealogy and how to research your family history. They used Dr. William’s family as an example. Genealogy is the second largest industry on the Internet. Michie did a slide presentation and shared the Latter Day Saints site which is called Family Search. It is free. It is a collaborative tree which means that you put in the information that you know and it can be shared. Other people can add to it or make changes. You can also scan pictures into this program. One interesting thing is that you can put in other people’s names and find out whether they are related to you. Many people today are really involved in genealogy and researching their family history.
