1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Basement of the LDS Church, Colville
The July 11th meeting of Northeast Washington Genealogical Society will introduce us to the wealth of information available to visitors on the NeWGS Website.
Past president and webmaster, Susan Deschant, will be our guide as we tour the many resources accessible to the public.  We will learn how to locate information from three local cemeteries, how to find books in the NeWGS library holdings and how to search the website for our ancestor's surnames.  Susan will also introduce us to the various projects our members are involved with and take us to the website store where we will find many local history books and research materials for purchase.
In the members only section, Susan will demonstrate how easy it is for current NeWGS members to access and download class handouts and minutes for both general and board meetings.
If you are one of the many who enjoy the home page and move on, please join us as we learn all the website has to offer.

Check it Out! Digital Public Library of America  (General Meetings)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Basement of the LDS Church, Colville
In the second of our Online Library Series, NeWGS Vice President, Norma Yost, will delve into the wealth of knowledge found at the Digital Public Library of America.  This online library connects researchers to the riches held within many of America’s libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions. All materials found through DPLA—photographs, books, maps, news footage, oral histories, personal letters, museum objects, artwork, government documents, and so much more—are free and immediately available in digital format. Participating cultural institutions represent the richness and diversity of America itself, from the smallest local history museum to our nation’s largest cultural institutions.
During this program, Norma will lead us on a journey through DPLAs massive holdings where we will barely touch the surface of the 20,845,365 items available from libraries, archives, and museums.  We will learn how to explore the website ourselves by item, place or date and how to view the many available maps and timelines.  The Digital Public Library of America is undoubtedly a priceless online resource at your fingertips.
