Genealogy Research Disaster Plan


Summer Genealogy Discussion Sessions


We are offering monthly round table discussion sessions on genealogy topics. These sessions meet on the second Monday of each month at the Mid-County Regional Library from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Plan to attend and keep your genealogy projects active throughout the summer.
No reservations are needed, just show up and bring your questions or problems to the group.
Who knows, someone may be able to offer some assistance or a suggestion that makes a big difference.
We will have available power strips  so you can plug in your laptops. Please contact Jim Maloney at maloneyj6@gmail.com if you can volunteer as an assistant for one of the dates below.

Tips & Tricks
Naturalization is the process of becoming a citizen. It is a two step process and takes about five years. The Declaration of Intent or 1st papers can be filed after two years of residency. Naturalization and the Oath of Allegiance are taken after an additional three years of residency.

It's very important to check maps. Boundaries change over time. Be sure the area where you think your ancestors resided is actually the area where they were.

Set up "proof files." These are your original documents and NEVER travel with you.
