• This will be a Hybrid Zoom/In-Person Meeting. In-person will be held at the Yavapai room at the Fountain Hills Community Center. This month we will be playing a game we call "Family Tree Feud". We will break into teams, ask questions, discuss the answers, and maybe learn something along the way. We'll also open the floor to people to discuss how they have been doing their genealogy over the last year and a half and if they have recommendations for other members. We look forward to seeing you.
