Family Genes

Family Genes is a society project for the preservation of members’ family tree studies.  Using a web-based application, known as TNG, or: “The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding”, our members can upload, display and archive their family information.

Explore the site at Family Genes and check out the dozens of family studies that have been posted.  You might find your ancestors.

The Family Genes group meets during the Genealogy Computing Group sessions on Saturdays.  The meeting are held at the AFHS Library each second Saturday, from 9:30 am until noon, except for the summer months of July and August.

     The AFHS Genealogy Computing Group will meet on Saturday, January 13th, starting at 9:30 am at the AFHS Library.

At the general meeting, we had a presentation on Cloud Computing and also on our Family Genes project for family trees.  Anyone with follow-up questions is welcome.

We will be working on our family trees using the Family Genes website and the TNG tree application.  Here is your chance to get your family tree, photos and documents safely uploaded and stored on the AFHS Family Genes website.  If you have not tried this service of AFHS yet, come on down to find out how to preserve your research for the next generation.

English/Welsh SIG

Meeting: Saturday, January 20th.

The next meeting of the English-Welsh SIG is this Saturday, January 20th (10 a.m. – noon) at the AFHS library when, together with “Ancestor Chat”, discussion of our families, our successes and problems, there will be an opportunity for “Computer Chat” – a sharing of information, tricks and tips on using computers and working in Word.

The topic for the February meeting, February 17th, will be “My Great Grandfather/Mother” (or Grandfather/Grandmother).  An opportunity for those who wish to, to tell us about that generation of ancestors. I’ll bring along maps and pins to highlight where that generation lived. Of course, for a few of us, that generation was already in Calgary.
