An update on new computer software for family history research is the topic for the next meeting of the Kingsland/Highland Lakes Genealogical Society (KGS). The program will feature guest speaker Sylvia L. Nimmo of Austin, and will be Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 2 p.m. in the Meeting Room at Gatti’s Restaurant in the Kingsland Highland Lakes Shopping Center, next to HEB on Hwy. 2900.

Ms. Nimmo’s presentation is “Family Tree Maker and Legacy, a Software Comparison”. She has studied genealogy at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and has had special training with the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Membership Committee and Library. She is a former Certified Genealogical Records Searcher and former member of the Association of Genealogical Educators, and has served as a Family History Center volunteer for 35 years.
Commenting on the new tools available on the Internet, she says, “This has completely changed methods of research, even making documentation easier.” For further information, contact Shirley Shaw at (830) 385-7070, or Joanne Scarborough, (830) 598-6443.
