RE: [GenGen-NV] Meeting plans for the GenGen-NV.
I think I can make the 6 May meeting. This FTDNA conference was great and
I'm looking for some future announcements from FTDNA. As for the 3 June
meeting, I will be on my way to Richland, Washington that day.

To members of the Surname Projects and Genetic Genealogy SIG and interested
I have the Meeting Room at the Tysons-Pimmit Library researaved for 6 May
and 3 June, after which I expect to take two or three months off for
I plan to devote the meeting of 6 May to discussion of the recent FTDNA
conference. I have asked Bill Hurst to lead off and tell us about his
session at the conference and then I hope others who where there can join
in a discussion to fill in details for those of us who were not able to
make it this years.
I expect the meeting on 3 June to be devoted to introductory material
specifically for some of our newer members and guests. I told the
attendees last night that I was interested in receiving questions and I
will organize future meetings around these questions, and the 3 June will
be one of these "question and answers" meetings. Depending on what
questions I get, we could devote an entire session to a single question or
a class of related questions. Any time left over can be used for
"questions from the floor" or general discussion.
Also if you have a topic of interest, please consider presenting it to the
group. This can be done very informally, or a formal as you would like to
make it. If you are uncomfortable in the preparateion or presentation,
please let me know and I would be glad to work with you, or even lead the
discussion. I have found the group to be neither shy or intimidating.
Please send me your questions and/or topics so that I can get started with
