Bet you'd never guess that an EWGS member is a 12-year volunteer with the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Sue Richart is an EWGS member and a member of the Northeast Washington Genealogical Society. She's been a presenter for EWGS a number of times. Know how her volunteering has helped you and me?
If you use the NEHGS website, www.AmericanAncestors.org, and take advantage of their many, many databases (mostly pertaining to New England ancestors) you can thank Sue. She's helped get a number of things ready to be posted online.
THANK YOU, Sue!

This voluntary/mandatory house-bound quarantine has seemed forever, surely yes. So let's finish it off with learning something new..... or reviewing something old. I'm talking about the FamilySearch WIKI. Use the WIKI to learn more about the PLACE you are researching and the RECORDS available there. Or just boning up on your genealogy research skills in general. Besides studying (take a good half hour, please!) there are six free video tutorials to help you learn all the tips and tricks for using the WIKI. These are available in the FamilySearch Learning Center, www.familysearch.org/ask/learningViewer/1035
