Join us September 7th. Dee Leclair will be showing us how to save files from places like the internet, Ancestry, and Family Search. She will cover different ways and types of backups for your research files that you have on your computer.
Please join us on August 3rd to discuss what you did this summer in regards to Genealogy.
