Brief Reminder: There are only three more days until our September 2012-13 Kick-off Meeting Monday, Sept. 17 at 6 p.m. at the Quitman Public Library.
It’s a covered dish meal greeting meeting, and we would like to have a large turnout and see you all. It seems ages since our last get-together in June. This is also one of our two yearly business meetings.
Also, if you haven’t mailed in your 2012-13 membership fee ($25 a member no matter how many in a household), you can pay at the meeting Monday or still drop in the mail if you live too far away to attend Monday. The address is Treasurer, Wood County Genealogical Society, P. O. Box 832, Quitman, Texas 75783.

The following post links to Family Tree Magazine’s list of best websites. Thanks to Upfront from NGS for permission to share this here.

Every year, Family Tree Magazine publishes a list of 101 Best Genealogy Websites and I always take a look! With a steady plethora of new websites, websites disappearing, etc, it’s nice to have such an annual list to allow one to quickly see if some “juicy” new sites are now available to help us with our genealogy and family history research.
Do recognize that there are specific categories (which are not necessarily the same each year) and so all the “great” websites you use may not be listed and, you may meet a “new” best friend!
Now that you’ve checked out the list – who is your new “best friend?”
