GRAND STRAND GENEALOGY CLUB
June 10, 2023 Family Tree Notebooks presented by Carly Morgan.
Family Tree Notebooks is a system of worksheets that you can mix and match to build ancestor "chapters" that hold all of the records, photos, and stories you want to share.
/// Each ancestor has an index number that you use to organize their pages. You can come up with your own index numbers or follow the handy pre-numbered index that goes from one starting "root" person all the way up to that person's 4th great-grandparents.
/// Add in siblings, cousins, business partners, second marriages, adoptive parents...you can capture all of those relationships just by using the right combination of pages.
/// I only sell digital pages because the pages are designed to be used again and again. This keeps the cost down and it also means that you'll always have all the pages you need to work on your family history!

VGA July 2022 Contest
VGA Book Club is currently reading "Stories in Stone" by Douglas Keister. For fun, go to your favorite cemeteries (online or in-person) and look through the headstones for examples of symbols found in the "Stories in Stone" book.
To enter, all you have to do is complete the quick form by naming the symbol found on a headstone and sharing a URL to the online image of it or uploading a picture that you took yourself in a cemetery.
Feel free to submit multiple entries!! Each entry will enter your name in the contest again for a chance to win prizes! However, once you submit one specific symbol (such as a lamb), you cannot submit the same symbol again. You have to find a different symbol for each entry!
Also, the intention of this contest is to look for the different symbols yourself by visiting online memorials or walking through a cemetery in-person. Please do not "google" the symbol to cheat finding it.
The contest ends at the VGA Book Club's next meeting on Tuesday, July 26th at 8:00pm Eastern. This contest and the upcoming VGA Book Club meeting is open to the public. Register for the Zoom event at: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZErdOCrqD8vGdDYuO0albpmNdeDD4f1P2i7
Any questions, please e mail them to email@example.com. Have fun and happy symbol searching!
