We are kicking off the new year with a special treat. Miles Meyer is taking us on a tour of European archives.

Europe is leading the way in putting many of their archives online. These archives provide an important resource for those researching their European ancestry. Miles will discuss how to find various regional and national archives and the steps needed to find those records that are most important to your research. The focus is on central European archives (France, Germany, etc.) and the larger archives such as the Europeana website.

Miles is a scientist by training but has been active in genealogy for over fifteen years in a variety of ways. His expertise revolves around new technologies. He is a Family History consultant, lecturer and researcher. Additionally, Miles has been a beta tester for several genealogy companies including AncestralQuest, FamilySearch, MyHeritage, and BillionGraves, to name a few. Miles has produced several training manuals and maintains several websites and blogs on genealogy related activities.

Join us on Saturday, January 19th, at the Southeast Branch Library located at 6670 US 1 South. St. Augustine Genealogical Society member meetings are open to the public at no charge. Check-in begins at 12:45pm and the meeting will be called to order at 1:00pm.
