Our membership renewal date has passed as of Aug 31st. However because you are able to
view this, you are a Renewed Member, or a New Member. I want to Welcome YOU!
Let me remind you of a few member benefits, You have access to all four
chapter meetings via zoom which some are recorded and are accessible to
members only, right here on the website. A month to catch up if you missed them
and watch at your leisure the past recorded meetings. We continue on with
the monthly book club, hosted by Carol Gafford. The reading selections are
varied and if you love to share your thoughts about the reading material and
love of books this is the venue to get involved in. The discussion zoom
meeting is a great way to socialize and share with fellow members. Our
website has been newly updated and you can now meet new cousins and
share your family interests through our new Surname project. Besure to add your Surname to
the list. We still are producing each month your Pasttimes Newsletter, I would love to give
a great shout out to Anne Swingle Borg, our program Editor. She is always coming up with
great articles for it. If you have any stories send them on to her to ger published in the next editon. We can't forget the MASSOG pamphlet three times a year comes to you by email or mail.The dedication of our Editor George D. Martin, and his entrourage of volunteers are just astounding. You can view all the past articles on the website here. These are great to research for your own relatives, as many past reaserchers have placed lineage lines or stories of their relatives and have documented them in this MASSOG Publications. I warn you though, you will be down a rabbit hole and will later ask yourself where has the time gone.
And I am happy to report we are contining on with our DNA SIG meetings every other month. Check here on the DNA dedicated page for dates and times. Check out the valuable source on the Forms page at the bottom, you will see "Leagacy Quick Guide", click on the link, you will find valuable free meetings on all topics of Genealogy.
Just a last note:
If you have a friend or relative whom you think would love to be a member, please share our website address, and share our MSOG Merrimack Valley Chapter news and meeting dates with them.
We hope to see you soon at our first meeting at the Peabody Library in Georgewtown MA, Sept 24th at 10AM. Its been much too long!
