Thank you for visiting our site. This is going to be a very exciting year for us as we launch our new, and greatly improved, website.
We have articles of interest, blank genealogy forms, and member stories, on a variety of topics.
Check out our links page. We are adding new links, and new categories, every day. We have recently added Norwegian, Swedish, and general Scandinavian sites and will be adding Denmark and Finland soon. Also, this week, we will be adding new Canadian sites, Cemetery sites, and more for NY City.
All links have been checked and are working but if ever you find a broken link, please, do not hesitate to contact us.
We also have links to many free, and mostly free, websites. Additionally, there are country specific links and topical links. And, we promise you that there are many more to come in the next few weeks.
OUR NEW SEASON OF CLASSES BEGINS THIS WEEK:
Both classes in October will be taught by Patti Kirk. Class fee will be $6.00.
First up is "THE ELUSIVE FEMALE".
This class will focus on places to search for the missing and elusive females in your family. Many research tools we use every day can be repurposed to find these hidden ladies. Since colonial times women seemed to be, often, non existent. Their lives played out through their associations with the men in their lives. Fathers, brothers, and husbands. If you've been searching for females in your family this class is for you. See calender of events for dates and times.
The second class this month is "VITAL RECORDS".
This class will focus on how to obtain birth, marriage, baptism,death, and divorce records. Patti will discuss ways to find these records even if the office you're visiting had a "fire". See calendar of events for dates and times.
Port St. Lucie group will be meeting at the LDS church in Palm City during the month of October. Same day and time (Wednesday, 1 - 3 PM) just a different location.
Welcome back it's going to be a great season!

Also coming soon we will have fast facts, blogs, forums, and a section called "Take a Break" for when you need a little lift during your research.
It is our desire that you join us for a little or a lot as your time allows. And, certainly, if you have suggestions we would love to hear them.
We hope that you find something, or many things, that spark your interest and that you visit us again as we will be regularly adding new material.
So, grab a cup of tea, browse through our offerings, and enjoy!
