Until further notice, RUG is modifying its meeting location and canceling lunches that follow meetings due to government warnings concerning Covid-19. RUG will not meet in person and instead operate its programs remotely. In the near future, the Executive Committee will reassess the situation and make further adjustments as necessary. If you are able to help us present a short program in the next few months, please email programs@rootsusers.org

MONTHLY PROGRAM
NO MEETING in April.

Our NEXT MEETING will be in May.
See FUTURE PROGRAMS on right.

The first session begins at 9:00am followed by a short break and then the second session begins about 10:30am.
We welcome members and new users! Come join us for our meeting by downloading the meeting application called join.me (see instructions in other column) and install it. Go to the folder where you downloaded it and double click on the app's icon to install it. When installation is complete you will have a join.me icon on your desktop. Click on the join.me icon and enter "rugmeeting" (or "rugmeeting2" if that doesn't work) in the 'Start' area (also described as "enter code" box). After joining the meeting, be sure to click on the telephone icon on the top left of your screen and then click "Internet". There are buttons on the join.me control panel at the top of your screen. Click on the people button and enter your name by clicking on the word "ViewerXX" (XX is some number) and add your first name, last initial, state and 'M' if you're a RUG member; or you can put in just your last name. Of course, you don't have to be a member to attend our meetings.

Your Suggestions!

Our priority is to offer presentations that address questions related to updating, protecting and sharing the precious data carefully collected within our TMG projects. Drawing on the useful tips in Terry Reigel's article titled "The Future for TMG Users" (see http://tmg.reigelridge.com/future.htm), we are offering programs focused on TMG's unique strengths. A second goal is to provide programs about sharing data through Reports, Second Site and GEDCOM. The third goal is to highlight non-TMG resources that offer benefits to members, such as TMG Utility, cloud-based services and DNA.

Please suggest presenters and topics, or volunteer yourself to speak at RUG meetings onsite or remotely via join.me. Suggestions should be addressed to: Programs at Rootsusers.Org
