VCGS Mexican American Special Interest Group @ On Zoom
Mar 2 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

The VCGS Mexican-American Special Interest Group meets to discuss historical literature, research strategies and current information pertaining to Mexican-American Genealogy. We strive to encourage our members to assist one another, as well as the general public in learning about family history. Members and attendees are encouraged to propose topics for discussion and to share ideas and knowledge in Mexican-American genealogy so that we can grow as a group.

Our meetings are open to the public and you don’t have to be a VCGS member to attend. We currently meet six times a year on zoom, The meetings are held in odd months of the year, (January, March, May, July, September, and November) on the first Saturday of the month.

The Mexican American SIG group will not meet on March 2, 2024 in order for members to attend RootsTech 2024. Our next Zoom meeting will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. 

To request to attend our meeting please contact Juan Venegas @ jvenegasgenealogy@gmail.com or Nancy Lehnhardt @ nancylgenealogy@gmail.com

“What’s New at the DNA Testing Sites”
Colleen Yinger

 

The major DNA testing sites frequently add new features and tools, particularly around the time of the annual Family Search RootsTech conference in early March.  At our May meeting, we will review what’s new at the major testing sites:  Ancestry, 23andMe, MyHeritage, FamilyTreeDNA, and Living DNA.  Be prepared to jump in and share your favorite new capabilities and how they are helping break down brick walls in your family tree!
