“Cousins-Right at Your Fingertips! Using the SKCGS Surname List”

One of the more frequently visited pages on our website is the Surname List. This is the digitized version of the box of 3 x 5 index cards to which people have been contributing for several years. A list of this sort is a great opportunity to find others who are researching the same families as you. MaryLynn will briefly show how the list works and how you can contribute your requests and share your information with others!

" Planning and Preparing for a Research Trip"

It's time. You've finally saved up your pennies and get to travel to the Family History Library in Salt Lake or the National Archives in D.C., or even make a trip to the county courthouses in the area where your ancestors lived! But how do you make it a trip full of great finds, well-used time, and feel-good moments? We'll chat about preparation before you leave, what to take with you, and processing information when you get home.

 

Mary Kathryn Kozy has been researching her family history for almost 40 years and in many localities. She has served in multiple positions in societies on the local & state level and currently serves as a part-time LDS Family History missionary and on the committee of the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). She holds bachelor’s degrees from UW in both Zoology and Information Technology & Systems and has completed two certificate programs with the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. She has also completed the ProGen program with an eye toward certification as a professional genealogist.
