Using Online FamilySearch Facebook Groups for Solving your Family History Brick Walls.
The regular monthly meetings of the Utah Valley Technology and Genealogy Group are held on the second Saturday of each month, except December, from 9 AM to noon. The meetings are free and open to the public. They are held at the Red Brick LDS Chapel, 4050 North 650 East (Timpview Drive), Provo, Utah, usually in the Cultural Hall. If you would like to receive email notification of classes planned for the next meeting, go to our blog page for instructions on how to subscribe. The Group is experimenting with live streaming of the main presentations through Facebook. To watch it online live click on UVTAGG Facebook website link in the box above and view the meeting remotely.
Carol will be showing how you can get Free help from someone on the other side of the world right from the comfort of your home. It’s pretty amazing to see members translating a document, finding a newspaper article or an obituary, sharing a genealogy joke, etc. FamilySearch has also created some communities not a part of Facebook that I will share as well.
