6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
ESGR Member Meeting on ZOOM
Genealogist Laura Cubbage-Draper will speak at our ESGR December meeting. Her topic: "Genealogical Timelines for Organization, Analysis and Problem Solving." The meeting will be held via Zoom, starting with a brief business meeting at 6:30, then turning to the presentation. A link to the meeting will be sent to all members about a week in advance, and will be posted in the Members Area of the ESGR website.
Cubbage-Draper describes her topic:
"In researching our family, we gather extensive amounts of records and information to be compiled. Timelines are a tool that allows us to organize our data, and to visually identify patterns, gaps, themes, and relationships. This program will provide examples of genealogical timelines (migration patterns, research gaps, specific record type, historical perspective, etc.) using Microsoft Word and Excel."
