Genealogy Problem Solvers (GPS) Special Interest Group

This group meets online.

Focus: Join us for a monthly support group where we help each other find information about a family line. We will learn to do a reasonably exhaustive search and develop research plans. The focus will shift depending on the needs of the group. Several experienced researchers have volunteered to help. Beginners and intermediate researchers are encouraged to submit problems to work on.*

* NOTE:  Research problems submitted to the GPS Team should be based within the United States and should not be primarily focused nor dependent on DNA.


Have you hit a brick wall in your research? If so, the GPS may be able to help you solve your problem. Please complete the form below, click SUBMIT, and Katie will contact you within three business days.
