Meetings

Our virtual meetings are the 4th Monday of the month starting at 7:00 pm (Pacific Time). We meet monthly January-May, take a summer break for June, July and August, meet September-November and take a break in December. Our programs are a combination of genealogical presentations and member-driven discussions. Our business meeting, which lasts about 30 minutes depending on the agenda, typically precedes the program presentation. Our meetings are open to the public and to anyone interested in genealogy and family history. Members receive the meeting link shortly before the meeting. Visitors may contact Carol Jenner (carol.b.jenner@gmail.com) or Nancy Cordell (dr.nancy@digginourpast.com) for meeting link.
