Our March Meeting March 8, 2014
Presented by Chris Urban
What is WordPress and why should I care? WordPress is one of the most widely used open-source based content management tools today. Free to use and learn, we will go through all of the basics you'll need to know to get yourself started with the platform used by millions of websites worldwide. We'll cover blogging basics, including tagging, plugins, themes and other features, such as commenting, contact forms and popular hacks. We'll learn by doing: we'll put together a blog during the course of the presentation.

Presented by Lisa Rysinger From Scottish Rumor to Scottish Royalty?
Using Genetic Genealogy to Piece Together the Puzzle!
"I always thought I was 50% Italian, 25% German, and 25% Irish, but after I had my DNA tested, I quickly learned that there was much more to my ancestry than I originally thought. In 2012, I began my genetic journey and it took me to places I never imagined- Scotland, Russia, Greece and even Finland! I wanted to know more, so I began sharing genomes with some of my matches. Two years later, I have more than 1000 cousins on 23andMe and quite possibly a Scottish castle in my pedigree. Join me as I show you how to use the best features of 23andMe, FTDNA, and Ancestry to break through the brick walls that traditional genealogy research could not. With today's technology, a lot of persistence, and a little luck, you, too, may find your DNA taking you places that you never imagined! " - Lisa Rysinger
