Welcome to CAGGNI!


CAGGNI Proudly Presents...

Storytellers' Special Interest Group
With Marti Swanson
Saturday, March 14
10:30 - 12:30
Schaumburg Public Library

The March topic for the Storytellers’ group is “How I Met My Spouse”--OR “How My Parents Met” OR “How My Grandparents Met.”

Set the scene: When and where (include sensory details); who was present. Then tell about the “trigger,” the event which set in motion all that was to follow. If appropriate, tell about the first date and/or courtship as well. If you want, you can conclude with information about the wedding.

Bring three paper copies of your story to our meeting. We’ll read each other’s stories and offer suggestions (as well as praise) before we share our stories with our own families.  Storytellers are also invited to submit finished work to CAGGNI's Newsletter for publication.

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.
