Members at the March meeting listen to a presentation 
about the Boston University program.

WHEN:  Thursday, April 12, 2012, 5:30 p.m. SLT (Second Life Time, same as Pacific Time)
WHERE:  Second Life, near the Just Genealogy Firepit

This month, we will have an informal discussion about “Cool Things I Found in the 1940 Census.” Whether it’s your own family or some interesting folks you found while indexing, please come and bring your stories. Slides are optional.

The SL-APG is an officially recognized chapter which promotes the highest standards of ethics and professionalism in the genealogical field at the regional level.

The chapter meets monthly using a free, social media, “virtual world” software called Second Life. It was organized to meet the networking needs of APG members who either do not have a local chapter near them, or are unable to attend their chapter meetings.

Anyone with an interest in genealogy is welcome to attend the meetings; however, official members of the chapter must be dues-paying members of the APG in real life.

Need help getting started? Drop me a line!

NOTE: The SL-APG is participating in the 1940 Census Indexing Project. To participate, go to and download the indexing software. When you log in, select “Second Life Chapter Association of Professional Genealogists – UT” from the drop-down list of societies (towards the bottom of list). Anyone who would like to join our band of indexers is welcome – you don’t have to be an APG member or even a Second Life user to participate!

Dislikes: people who copy stuff off the internet without giving credit, and county clerks who can't tell the difference between Eastern and Pacific time zones. Secretly hopes her daughter will one day develop an interest in family history (but no luck so far).
