Feeling this topic is not discussed often enough or explained to new genealogists I am going to ask this all important question.
How many of you people reading this belong to a Society?
How many Societies do you belong to?
If you do, does your Society hold one day a year to review each others surnames and places of research?
Societies can definitely help a beginning researcher to move in the right directions and learn.
They can assist with many facets of research. From the actual researching to the methods used or places to locate information.
I also firmly believe your local society is your Home society and the one your affiliated with in the distance is the Home Away From Home society. Many times both can offer the same services but it would be covering different areas.
