Next General Meeting - 21 May

Members Share their Research

Come to our 21 May General Meeting at Nazareth University and learn from RGS members as they share their research with you. Stroll around the room, get new ideas, and ask your specific questions as you view each poster presentation. Topics include:

  • Filling in the Gaps of Your Ancestor's Life by Chris Booth
  • The Roots - Patriots and Pioneers by Linda Whitney
  • Mauk DNA Project  by Don Sigwalt
  • From Boston to Albany to Detroit: Sam Coverley's Journey Across New York State in 1821 and 1822 by John Albertini
  • How Newspapers Opened my Genealogical Research by Eric Vaughn
  • Correcting the Record by Adam Hill
  • The Smiths of Geneva, NY by Deborah Grande
  • Middle Eastern Roots by Stacey Daly
  • Madama Farming and Villa Harvesting by Andrew Paris

There's something for everyone!

This is also our Annual Meeting so a short state of the RGS will be presented and we will elect four Board members. The positions open are First VP, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, and Historian/Genealogist. Running for these are Tawnya Post, Todd Andrea, Ann Schauber, and John Caulfield respectively. Their bios can be viewed here.

We are back at the Otto Shults Center at Nazareth University - easily reached by entering the North Campus Drive entrance off East Avenue. Parking is near the building. This meeting is both on Zoom and in-person, but you'll get the most out of it if you attend in-person. So come and meet other RGS members and see what they have found in their research. Register now.
