Each session has a group discussion on a pre-arranged topic, then accesses the library computers for the second part of the meeting. New members are assisted on the computers by the more experienced members and there are opportunities for problem solving, or how to get over the "brick wall" that we all reach at times! New members are welcome. We use websites available from the library computers for genealogy.
The objectives of the group are threefold:
