Combined May-June Newsletter
There will be a combined newsletter to be delivered shortly after our May RUG meeting because we want to include as much information as possible from our Anniversary event. There will be no newsletter in June, but we will resume our normal newsletter delivery schedule in July.

Annual Business Meeting
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.
