HAVE YOU HEARD THE GOOD NEWS??
GVGS expanded the Membership Year by adding an additional general meeting beginning with May 17, 2018!
BEGINNERS SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP – APRIL 11TH MEETING
It's not just for beginners this month. We have something special planned!
Our regular meeting will start at 10AM (this month's topic will be tips on searching Ancestry.com), and if you ever wondered how large a Conestoga wagon is, then make sure you come to the Primary Room to see one for yourself. Our special guest, Susan Burdick, will tell us about the trials and tribulations our ancestors endured as they moved across the northern plains on their way to Oregon and Washington. Anyone who has ancestors who migrated west will surely be interested in hearing this presentation.
This meeting will be held in the large primary room near the GVGS Library from 10:00am - 12 Noon. The address is: 17699 S. Camino de las Quintas, Sahuarita, AZ 85629.
If you have any questions contact Deb Kabinier via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

TERMINATION OF THE GVGS FACEBOOK PAGE
Due to lack of member participation, and our excellent & popular GVGS website, the Board decided to shut down our Facebook site. Remember: the right hand side of the Home page on our website serves as the GVGS "Bulletin Board" announcing our society's upcoming events along with other events that may be of interest to our membership. Check our website regulary to keep up to date on genealogy events.
Submit Your Family Photos for Display on Our Website
GVGS members are encouraged to submit family or historical photos for our website. Images selected will appear in the photo bar at the top of the Home page. These photos change each time visitors go to a new page on the GVGS website. To submit your photos, you'll need to scan them – make sure the resolution of the image is the best you can get. Then, send an email to our Web Manager identifying the people in your photos and attach your images. (Web Manager's email address is email@example.com)
