Computer and Research Help Genealogy Group

Meeting 4th Wednesday of the Month

10 am - Noon

Ames Public Library Auditorium, 515 Douglas Ave., Ames, Iowa

Many people have asked for more research help sessions. Often requests for research help are about understanding how to use their genealogy software effectively, as well as research techniques to find their elusive ancestor!

So…each month (4th Wednesday) we will meet in the auditorium at the library. If we have a software presentation and others want to get assistance with a specific research problem, we are able to divide the room and meet everyone's needs. Our super genealogy sleuth helpers will be on hand to help you.

We encourage you to bring your own computers, but we will have library computers available too.

Story County Genealogical Society and the Ames Public Library are pleased to offer this genealogical assistance along with our other monthly program, Genealogy Plus.

The next Computer & Research Help Genealogy Group will be Wednesday, April 25.
