PCGS May Meeting
Our meeting this month begins with a class on "Evidentia" facilitated by Rondie Yancey.
Following the class, Bob Black, Director of the Family History Center Tucson East, will present a program on The Family History Center Guide, a new website for learing how to do pretty much anything you want in family history. (You can preview the website at https://thefhguide.com.) Bob spent 20+ years working in healthcare human resources before retiring. In 2011, he began working  at the Family History Center in Tucson, along with his wife June, and since 2014, he has been serving as Director. Bob's passion is helping people at the Center with their family history discovery journey.
Meeting Date:  Saturday, May 20, 2017
