Do you have questions about your courses? Are you struggling with your family history research? Do you want to learn more about the research process to find your ancestors? Should you use the Google or Bing search engines? Wondering where you would find a resource? Your questions can be answered at an appropriate Virtual Meeting!

We also have two special sessions scheduled this month. On Thursday, April 17th, Shannon Bennett will discuss her experiences with the Methodology-Parts 1 and 2 courses. And, on Sunday, April 20th we have a Student Presentation on the subject of citations from Susan Hill Bonko.
