Saturday, May 21, 2009 Meeting

General Announcements: Pat Foster is the new Treasurer. Pat will be available at our monthly Saturday meetings to take your membership dues. Thanks Pat!

Our THANKS to Ron Coleman, who asked to be reassigned. Ron has served for the Treasurer for 3-years and we have appreciated all the work her has done keeping the Users Group finances in order. Ron has now taken the responsibility of Education Chairperson. Ron has a great deal of experience with Family History/Genealogy and will be great in helping the Users Group organize our monthly meeting presentations.

Cemetery Project - we are seeking volunteers to help transcribe information and take pictures of the MANY cemeteries he have in Washington County. Please call Max Turpin - 674-9204 or Fran Lightner - 688-1260 We can also use help in clipping obituaries out of the newspaper and putting them on the Cemetery website. This can be done in your home. Contact Fran if you can help with this.

Website - We are still working on the website. It is a slow process, but take a look where you can read monthly class minutes and up-coming class schedules. If you have any suggestions for the site give Fran a call - 688-1260.

RootsMagic4, our presentation in April, is the first software affiliate product that is certified to reserve and submit ancestral names to temples to print LDS temple name cards using new FamilySearch Web services. Congrats and Good Work RootsMagic4!

Allen Forsyth gave our presentation on - Personal Computer Safety. Allen started us off by saying "Always Be On Guard - and, Just Don't Click". Allen's class certainly gave us some moments of feeling like we can't possibly keep all of these 'BUGS' off of our computers. But continued on by giving11 steps to protect our computers. Lots of information was given to help us each do what we can to keep our information safe. Thanks Allen!
