President's Message

All KVGS events for the rest of this year are cancelled (through June 30). 
Stay home and stay healthy.
What a strange time this is.  I will miss seeing everyone at our meetings, webinars, and user groups.  Portage District Library has cancelled all programming and meetings through the end of June. 
The new KVGS year begins July 1.  You can renew now either on the website or with the paper renewal form in this month's newsletter. Renewing on the website is fast and easy.  You will need to log in to the MEMBERS area first (If you've forgotten your log in or pasword, click on the "?" next to thoe and the information will be emailed to you).  Then go to PROFILE, make a few clicks - and presto, you've paid your dues.
I hope you have been able to spend some extra time on genealogy.  There are lots of learning opportunities listed in this month's newsletter.  Or perhaps it is time to file that pile of papers sitting precariously on the corner of your desk.  Whatever you do, have a good time catching up on your genealogy projects.
Hoping to see you soon. 
Jan Wright
