PCGS June Meeting
Our meeting this month starts with a class on Using Genealogy Applications on Your Tablet facilitated by Kathi Gardner (PCGS member).
Our main program features Nicole Dyer's program on "Tips on Sharing Family History with a Blog". Nicole has been researching her ancestors and delighting in their stories for over fifteen years. She created the "Family Locket Blog" where she and her mother write about their genealogy endeavors and share family tips and ideas.
Nicole, her husband, and three children (ages 6, 3, and 1 year) reside in Tucson, Arizona. A former middle school history teacher, Nicole enjoys writing about her ancestors and fitting them into the rich historical context of the time period in which they lived.
Meeting Date:  Saturday, June 17, 2017
Meeting Time:  1:00pm - 3:00pm
Meeting Location:  Banner-University Medical Center, Duval Auditorium, 1501 N. Campbell Rd., Tucson
