Announcing "Ask Your Questions Day," 15 September


What’s your roadblock? Technology? You can’t find Grandma’s maiden name? You’ve searched the passenger list indexes and still can’t find your family? Do you have a question about the society website, blog, Facebook page, Twitter feed, office research room, First Families program, or other resources? We have the perfect event to help StLGS members get answers.
      St. Louis Genealogical Society is sponsoring an Ask Your Questions Day for members only on Saturday, 15 September 2012 at the society office. We will have experts available on the following topics: researching African American, German, Irish, Italian, Jewish, and other ethnicities; genealogical computer programs including Family Tree Maker, RootsMagic, and The Master Genealogist; StLGS blog, News Flash; Facebook; Twitter; handheld scanners; the StLGS website; First Families; and the StLGS Research Room.

How do you participate?
  • No later than 1 September 2012, e-mail <publicity@stlgs.org> or call the StLGS office at 314-647-8547 with a specific question and to request an appointment. You will need to be specific so we can match you to the correct expert.
  • You will have twenty minutes with your expert to answer your question.
  • We will schedule the time and do an e-mail or telephone confirmation.
  • Please arrive at the office at least ten minutes early.
We hope that if you have research questions, you will sign up and come in so we can assist you. See you then!
