Thanks Familysearch

At the recent NSW&ACT Conference our friends from Familysearch offered  surplus new computer monitors to interested genealogy groups. We were fortunate to obtain one of these that we can use for visual displays at events such as the Hornsby Heritage event next Saturday.

Thanks to Familysearch at Carlingford for making this donation to our Group.

At our last meeting a member pointed out that we are all at different stages of our research/love affair with genealogy and that some folk may not understand some of the terms associated with our field of interest.

Some members had asked What is a Gedcom?  The NSW & ACT Association of Family History Societies Inc shared this link recently that answers the question more coherently than your blogger can.
