Topic:  Genealogy books you would recommend
Have you read any reference or "how to" books on genealogy? How about on DNA? Or any of the genealogy mysteries, historical fiction featuring genealogists, or ones where someone researching their family writes about their research and results? Any book that has something to do with genealogy qualifies. In January we will talk about the books we like and then publish the list in the February newsletter.

Me and My 1,000+ DNA 4th Cousins
If you have seen the results from an autosomal DNA test you have likely seen a long long list of 4th cousins. Who are all of these people? Are all of them relevant to your family history research? How do you go about figuring that out? We will cover the tools available at your DNA testing company that will help you sort and filter your match list, to present you with only your Best Matches, those who are most able to help you with your genealogical questions. We will learn both analysis and organizational techniques that are sure to add more leaves to your family tree.
 
Organizing Your DNA Results
Now that you have pages of matches and gobs of new information, how do you keep track of it all? We will spend time going over how to create and track correspondence, organization tools within each testing company, as well as strategies for tracking the genealogy information of your matches, including surnames, locations, and genetic relationships. You are bound to walk out of this lecture with a game plan that you can implement right away.

As we work to create an updated website for OGS it is important to hear from our members what you would like to see on it. We will create a wish list of all the things our members would like to have on our website. Not everything will make the cut for the first round, but it will stay on the list for future additions to the website. Register now for the February Genealogy Chat and start working on your list of wishes. If you have examples of what something looks like on another website, please copy and paste that URL into a document and send it to me before the February Chat.
