CAGGNI Proudly Presents

Creating and Sustaining Your Family Newsletter: Genealogy-Rich Source Material

by Janis Minor Forté

Saturday, 20 August 2016
10:30 a.m.
Schaumburg Public Library

Creating a family newsletter is a dynamic way of maintaining contact with and communicating to family members. A newsletter documents the past legacy of the family while preserving family events for future generations. This presentation chronicles the development of what is a now 18-year family newsletter. 

Janis Minor Forté is an experienced genealogist, writer and lecturer. She has presented at FGS, NGS, OGS, Roots Tech, ISGS and local conferences. In 2014 she was the James Dent Walker Memorial Lecturer at the FGS Conference. In 2013 she won First Place in the ISFHWE Excellence-in-Writing Competition, and her family newsletter won Honorable Mention in the Genealogy Newsletter Category. She is a member of CAGGNI.

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

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

A wide variety of genealogy software packages are used by the members as well online trees and database websites. We are also interested in personal websites, digital photography, handheld apps and other ways to share our family histories.
