Upcoming conference here in Omaha Nebraska will be October 24th. We will
be talking about wills & probate records, Civil War pensions, have a panel
discussion to discuss some of the attendee's research problems (you have to
send in your problem with your registration and tell what you've done and
what you know about your problem for the panel to have half a chance at
figuring out further ways to help you), and have an Antiques Roadshow type of
event as well (so you can bring a family heirloom to find out more about it.)
Place: Again at the Nebraska Methodist College, Josie Harper campus.
Registration is in progress. If you did not get a flyer in the mail, you can
download one at _www.gogsmembers.wordpress.com_
(http://www.gogsmembers.wordpress.com) (look on the sidebar for the button to click). You'll want to
get your registration in soon so that you can qualify for the
pre-registration price (otherwise, the price goes up $10 at the door, whether you're a
Society member or not...and we offer the pre-registration special so that
we know how many hand outs to prepare.)
The first class starts at 9:00, so you'll want to come early (doors open at
8:15). There will be a bake sale, and lunch will be served at a nominal
If you missed our first ever Genealogy Lock-In, you missed a good time.
We introduced over 60 folks to the resources that are at the W. Dale Clark
Library, (had snacks, which are not commonly acceptable on 3rd floor), and
people had access to 14 computers there on 3rd, whereas the genealogy room
has two that usually can be used without reservations to do genealogy
research without reservations. There were people there from GO-PAF who helped
answer genealogy program & computer questions. It was generally decided that
we need to do another one, so we will, but not for a few months. Sorry if
you missed it...so don't miss the Workshop too!
Welcome to the NEDODGE mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.

1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
