Making Family Trees with Excel
Tuesday, January 31
Making Family Trees with Excel  (Classes)
2:30 pm
Genealogy Library @ La Posada
Facilitator/Instructor:  Ed Storey, SAGS Member
 
We all need copies of our trees, perhaps to send to someone who is related or who might be helpful. We don't want to send the whole tree and need a flexible copy. Excel provides a means to make such a tree. It can be any size or any color and have as much detail as you would like.
 
For this class, you should have some familiarity with Excel, and it should be installed on the laptop that you will bring with you. Since this class will be held at the Genealogy Library, our space will be limited so using the built-in mouse on your laptop is recommended. Space is limited to 6 people attending this session. If you would like to attend, or have questions about this session, please send an email to Ed Storey at ecs7fg@gmail.com
 
There will be opportunities for more help on either on Feb. 7th or 14th.

SAGS Monthly Meeting
Thursday, April 20
SAGS Monthly Meeting  (Monthly Meetings)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
La Posada Recreation Center in Green Valley & via Zoom Meeting
 
For our April meeting we will have two main presentations. No short program is planned. 
 
 
Presenter:  Becky McCreary
Topic:  Writing Our Stories:  How often have you wished that you had listrened better to your parents' or grandparents' stories of their lives? Now is the time for us to write stories about our lives, so that future generations can know us. The presentation will include subject ideas and tips & treasures about writing. Please bring paper and pen/pencil.
 
Presenter:  Rick Dobie
Topic:  A Short History of Migration in Steerage:  We have heard the stories of immigrants after they arrive in the U.S. However, the information about how and what our immigrant ancestors experienced while traveling is often sketchy and scattered. Unless our ancestors were rich, they probably traveled in steerage. What was it like to travel in steerage? Where did our ancestors stay while they waited for their voyage? These are a few of the questions I ask myself while researching my family. I will share the information from many sources I gathered to help provide some answers to these and other European immigration questions.
 
In-Person Meeting Info:
  • Speakers will be presenting "in-person" and the meeting will also be available via Zoom for those unable to attend in-person.
