Inventor, statesman, and founding father—he seemed to do it all! Learn more about the man who not only harnessed electricity and helped shape the country that would come to be known as the United States, but also entertained people with his satirical writing and adages.

The election of the new board will be done at the business part of the meeting.  After that we will have our Annual Potluck Social, so please bring a dish to share.

CAGGNI (The Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois) is a group of amateur genealogists who are committed to using technology and the internet more effectively in support of their research activities. 

Monthly meeting topics cover a broad range of subjects of interest in supporting genealogical activities including software, tools, techniques and methodologies.  Additionally, monthly newsletters, support for both computer and genealogy issues and Internet surname exposure are among the benefits of membership. 

A variety of genealogy software packages are used by the membership. Popular software includes Family Tree Maker (FTM), Ancestry.com public member trees, Genii, Reunion, Personal Ancestral File (PAF), and The Master Genealogist (TMG).  We are also interested in personal websites, digital photography, handheld apps, and other ways to share our family histories.
