Welcome and Introductions
∼ Beginning Program
Speakers from Southern Nevada provide helpful information to our members and guests on genealogical topics. All topics presented in our programs are most often determined by members’ interests.
∼ Society Business Meeting
A short Business Meeting is held after the Short Program. Guests are introduced, information is given about the society, and future events are discussed.
∼ Refreshment Break
A Refreshment Break is scheduled after the Business Meeting and before the rest of the program; all attendees are invited to help themselves to refreshments brought in by volunteers.
∼ Main Program
The Main Program includes outstanding speakers on genealogical subjects such as Land, Cemetery, Military, Courthouse, and Census Records; DNA; Organization; and Internet Sites. This Program allows enough time to go in depth with these topics and provide enough questioning time from the audience.
