GENEALOGY CHAT, Saturday 23 Oct 2021
Please join us for our September Genealogy Chat on Zoom from 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM. 
 
Program:  Will I get different search results using different search engines, or are they all the same?
 
Dawn Carlile will give us a comparison of several different search engines you can use to search on the internet. Is there one that is better than the others for genealogy? Do they all work the same way or do they have different ways of searching using wildcards?
 
The Oregon Genealogical Society is also on Facebook.
Click on the blue square (the ) at the bottom of this page to go directly to our Facebook page and follow us there as well.
 
OGS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit so your donations are tax-deductible.
