Family Genes >>

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.
