Online Meeting - April 7th

The April 7th meeting was our first virtual meeting, using GoToWebinar© software hosted by the Texas State Genealogical Society. At this virtual meeting, we voted in the slate of officers nominated for the 2020-2022 term. We then had a wonderful presentation, on “Techniques and Strategies for More Effective Online Searching” which was presented by Bernard Meisner.
A sincere Thank You! to all 70+ people who registered and watched the presentation. Will have information about our upcoming May 5th meeting soon.
