We meet at Clayton State University Library

We meet every other month starting in February, at Clayton State University in the University Center room 265.
We start at 3pm and end around 5pm. Everyone age 16 or older is welcome, from beginners to experts.

Park in the "G" area and walk to the University Center "12" on the map. Go to the entrance on the East Side. Once inside, look for our classroom across from the entrance to the Library.



Let's Organize!

So, you've had that family reunion BBQ over the Memorial Day Weekend and you've gathered some more genealogy information. Now it is time to ORGANIZE!!

There are several different methods of genealogical organization. Some people use the BINDER methods, some people do everything digitally, some people use what I call "PILES". You know what I mean. They have Grandma's "pile" over here and Granddad's "pile" over there. I use a mixture of the pile method and the COLOR CODED method

Our next meeting is going to be on June 4th at 3pm and I am going to go in depth about the color coded method and how to set it up for those who are interested. We would also like to hear from YOU! If you have a different method that works great for organization. How do you keep it together? 

If you want to get a head start on the color coded method, there are a lot of blogs about how to go about doing it. The best one I've found is this one from Berry Ewell  and this one here. 

Our meeting in August will be about Native American genealogy research! See you June 4th!
