Tomorrow and the farther future

Remember our program tomorrow (Saturday) at 10:30am with John Wylie as our guest speaker. He'll talk about the pros and cons of using genealogy software instead of the paper and pencil method of tracking your research. He'll also talk about what features to look for in software programs.

These are my last few days working with the McKinney Public Library System. Next week Susan Kusterbeck takes over as our genealogy librarian. She will do a fine job of continuing to build our collection. She will, of course, continue to post to this blog weekly. When you can squeeze it in to your busy schedules, take time to come by and meet Susan.
