Second Life Chapter APG April Meeting

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 https://the1940census.com/society 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!
