Upcoming HOWGS Programs and Events


Welcome Back! Our Next Meeting Is Coming up!

      DATE: Saturday, August 20, 2022
      TIME: 9:30 a.m.
      WHERE: Meeting/Training Room at McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids

      PROGRAM: We will have two presentations for our program.

Grow Your Family Tree: Use Our Library Resources!

In the first presentation, HOWGS member Flores Gumz will give a walking tour and description of the genealogical resources at McMillan Memorial Library and a description of the work being done by HOWGS Members to update and expand those resources.

Want to See Your Ancestors in Color?

Photographs are an essential resource in genealogical research. They add faces to the names in your family tree. HOWGS member Wayne Peters will demonstrate an online service to repair, enhance and colorize your old photos. Attention HOWGS Members: Bring some of your old black & white photographs to the meeting to be colorized. They can be individual photos or photos can be left in the photo albums they are in. After the meeting, Wayne will take a scan of your photos and you can take your original photos back home with you. Wayne will then provide you with a colorized version at the next HOWGS meeting. We may need to limit the number of photos per member if there is a large number of them.
