Genealogy Club News

If you're avoiding the stores today, you'll have a chance to consider the Legacy deal that Dick has forwarded this morning. Also, Rick sent an email that included a free download of Thomas McEntee's book, 500 Best Genealogy and Family History Tips. It is for Kindle, but you can also get a free app to read it if you are interested.

Rick's email included a link to all kinds of genealogy (and other) deals for Black Friday. Visit the list at

We have had several donations recently besides the previously mentioned Alberta Genealogical Society's quarterly publications. Val Greenwood's book, The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy, (always recommended by conference speakers) is now part of our library.

Two other books were given to the club last week. Genealogy Online (even with its 2008 copyright date) is worth a look during a workshop. Another donation was Desmond Walls Allen's book, First Steps in Genealogy. We suggest reading bits and pieces of any of these books to increase your understanding of the hobby of chasing ancestors.

The club has also purchased a beginning genealogy book called The Complete Idiot's Guide to Genealogy, by Christine Rose. We will add it to our library.
