We will make a group spreadsheet using your shared information. Everyone will have access to this data. Facts already provided by members will be in the database and ready for additions or corrections.

We plan to demonstrate how to use a spreadsheet, how to actively research using Evernote and how to begin the genealogy process. Plan to share how you use these programs.
