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.

For questions about the group, comments, and suggestions contact secretary@caggni.org To report problems with the website contact webmaster@caggni.org.
