Welcome to February! As I mentioned at last month's meeting, we're changing the program a bit in February. We'll still have great classes available. We've decided on a new format to try and make it easier for people to attend more than one class! In the past, we've had just one session from after the opening session (typically around 9:30am) until 11am. In February, we'll start out with a shorter opening session 9am-9:15am and then we'll have the first set of classes go from 9:20am-10:20am and then everyone can switch to one of the other classes and the 2nd set of classes will go from 10:30am-11:30am. The instructors will be teaching their same class twice. This allows for our users to attend 2 of the 3 classes offered this month, in one morning!

We hope you enjoy this new format and please feel free to let us know what you think about it. As mentioned we have 3 classes we're offering this month:

First, we have Sean Conley back with us to teach us about "Finding the Needle in the Haystack". He'll be discussing using advanced Google search, operands, and Boolean search. He'll discuss using wildcards in searching Ancestry as well. This is a great class for anyone who wants to use more advanced search options when looking for their ancestors. Second, I'll be talking about cemetery records. I'll be talking about finding your ancestor in cemetery records. I'll look at a couple of the more popular cemetery sites and some not so well known sites that have been adding a lot of records lately. Third, we have our Reunion class. Martha Wallace will be leading a discussion of Using Multimedia in Reunion: Linking multimedia files (pictures, movies, sounds, PDF files, Word documents, and text files) to a person, family, or source. She'll also take a look at some of the new features available in Reunion 12.

If you've ever wanted to attend more than one of our classes on Saturday morning, then starting in February you'll be able to do just that. Our meeting is this Saturday, Feb 10th from 9am-11:30am. We meet at 875 Quince Ave, Santa Clara, CA.
