FamilyTreeMaker – Special Interest Group

Group Leader: Dennis Partridge FamilyTreeMaker is a top selling genealogy software in use by many of our members. This Special Interest Group is for those users who want to learn more about how to use the software to build their own Family Tree. We will meet virtually as a class since some users have FTM installed on their desktops and are unable to bring it with them to a meeting in the Library, and we may have some of our non-local members who want to participate. I want to hold an initiating virtual meeting first and then we’ll decide on frequency and dates/times for the SIG. At this point if you think you are interested in joining this group, please submit the following signup form. Thanks! This Special Interest Group is open to current members of Amelia Island Genealogical Society only. Not a member? Come join us today! Membership has it’s benefits! FamilyTreeMaker SIG (FTM-SIG) is a user group sponsored by the Amelia Island Genealogical Society – AIGS. The purpose of FTM-SIG is to assist genealogists in utilizing FTM to its fullest potential and advancing their family history research.

Writing Your Ancestors Life Story – Special Interest Group

Group Leader: Dennis Partridge At some point in the process of conducting genealogical research, you should desire to save and pass down to your descendants those stories you’ve discovered about your ancestors. We’re not talking BMD facts (birth, marriage, death), but who were these people, what did they do during their life, and how did they contribute to society and the world around them? With a combination of video and working through online blog posts and writing instruction, participants in this small interest group will begin the process of putting pen to paper and writing out these stories. Times and dates to be determined by class participants. This will be a virtual SIG, which means you can participate from the comfort of your home and only need an internet connection and a method to join in . If you have a question about this group please fill out the comments below the signup form. Otherwise if you’re interested in joining, please fill out the form and click the button to sign up. The group leader will contact you back! This SIG is open to AIGS current members only. Membership has it’s benefits! Not a member? Come join us today!

Special Interest Groups (SIG)

Genealogists often have overlapping interests and skillsets (or lack thereof) with other genealogists. These overlapping genealogical interests and skillsets are perfect for groups of members to create a group around. We call these Special Interest Groups, or SIGs for the abbreviated shortened version. SIGs from the board. These groups can meet virtually or in person and can be anywhere from 2-12 people (you get more than 12 and they kind of defy the definition of “small”). It’s up to each group how often to meet, and when to meet. The Amelia Island Genealogical Society will support you in your interests, setting up these groups, and getting the word out to the membership. These groups are for members only! It’s one of those benefits of membership we like to talk about on the website. Each SIG sets their own dates and time for meetings, how frequently they meet, and whether to meet in person or virtually. If you’re at all interested, please register for the group on their individual pages and the group leader will get in touch with you. FamilyTreeMaker – Special Interest Group
