August Membership Meeting

What Research Treasures are at the  Central Regional Branch Archives?
On August 9, WAGS will present a hybrid meeting with special guest Brigid Clift, Regional Branch Archivist at the State Archives in Ellensburg. She will share her screen and show us what’s been going on at her archives and digital archives. They have a project going with Ancestry.com that we’ll need to know about, and we’ll find out more about their volunteer-from-home program.
This will be a hybrid meeting: Those who are comfortable being in-person can join us at the Douglas PUD Auditorium (1151 Valley Mall Parkway, East Wenatchee); or you can continue to Zoom–you can be present either way!
Monday afternoon, August 9, 2021   2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Wenatchee Area Genealogical Society Genealogy Disaster Planning

Wenatchee Area Genealogical Society (WAGS) will hold its June meeting via Zoom on Monday, June 14, at 2:00 p.m. Email WAGSLibrarian@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link.
Our speaker is Julie Miller of JPM Genealogy Research in Broomfield, Colorado. She will give us “An Ounce of Prevention: Making a Genealogy Disaster Plan.” After seeing what happened in Texas last winter, and knowing our own ongoing wildfire threat, we decided to have a program focusing on planning for the worst. Our documents, photographs and databases can be lost in an instant in the event of a disaster. This lecture will show how to plan before the crisis occurs, so that loss is minimized and your genealogy legacy is preserved for future generations.
