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.



How do I know that? Come to our meeting on April 8th and find out.

Our next meeting is on April 8th at 3pm. As with all our meetings this year, it is more of a workshop rather than a sit and listen. That means YOU NEED TO BRING YOUR PROJECTS TO WORK ON!

During the last meeting in February there was a lot of talk about DNA and GEDmatch.com . So, in addition to talking and actual filing this go around, for those of you who are interested, some members plan to get together and add their raw data to the GEDmatch.com site. If you have been following along on our Facebook page you would have seen the following post earlier this month from Selma:

Have you added GEDmatch.com to your DNA toolbox? For a brief video on how to join and add your raw data, the following is helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acGJmLlsWg4 If you have your DNA kit, you may want to get this next step done. Hint, hint, we will explain more at the April meeting and answer a BIG request from the group. But this MUST be done first! If you have been thinking about DNA and wonder should I? NOW is the time.

She has also posted several worksheets on Facebook that you can download and print out for organization and GEDmatch.com . For DNA, you need about 6 copies of the chromosome sheet when you come to the meeting.  If you are not a member already, our Facebook group is found here . 

So, bring a friend or two. Bring your DNA and GEDmatch.com files and chromosome sheets. This is a working workshop! And if you are not working on DNA you can join the rest of us by working on organization OR on anything else you want to! This is YOUR genealogy time. Away from the kids, or significant others, or who ever keeps bothering you and asking you to make them dinner.
