A quick survey of the 12 members who attended the Genealogy meeting on Tuesday shows that:

5 are searching in Germany, 4 in Ireland, 2 each in England and Slovakia, and 1 in Scotland.

6 the 1800's; 3 the 1700's; 1 is searching as early as the 1600's; 1 the 1900's.

3 have been doing genealogy for less than 5 years; 3 for 8-10 years; 3 15 years or more and 2 unknown

2 use Ancestry; 2 (including me) use FTM; 2 use PAF; 2 use a computer without any specific program, 1 uses Legacy, and 1 depends on relatives.

1 did not indicate how records are managed

OC Genealogy has its own blog

This blog is for OC Genealogy members to share information about their triumphs and brick walls as they conduct their research. I will try to share pertinent information about the group from time to time and ask that members feel free to share any questions or information that they may have.

I have had difficulty recording comments. If you wish to contact me please do so at
