The next Edmond Genealogical Society (EGS) meeting will be on Monday, November 21st, at 6:30pm.  Kathy Patterson, Wikitree member, will present a program on Wikitree – a totally free website with one profile for everyone who ever lived. 

Wikitree is a free, shared social-networking genealogy website that allows users individually to research and contribute to their own personal family trees.       

Kathy Patterson has been interested in genealogy since she received a DAR American History award in the 6th grade.  She will talk about safeguards for your own work, privacy issues, wonderful widgets that can be created using Wikitree, and how to handle conflict, with slides demonstrating Wikitree in action.  

 We look forward to seeing you on Monday, November 21st at the LDS Church on 15700 N. Penn. Avenue.  This will be the last meeting for 2022 !!  We will not meet in December.
