2. How many years have you been a member of a Society? Ours?
3. How often do you do research work? Daily, weekly, monthly
4. What started you on the path of genealogy?

5. What areas of the USA do you have ancestry? Have you been to these areas
doing research?
6. In what other countries do you have ancestry? Have you been to them for research?

13. Do you read the CV Genealogy Cafe Blog?
14. Have you posted messages to Rootsweb/Ancestry, Genforum boards or lists?
15. What Genealogical magazines do you read?
16. What are your Genealogy Goals?

Most of the items were combined some were felt not pertinent by these 11 members

It was felt we should add what are your goals? How often do you site your Sources?
And a Interesting comment was, “What branch of my tree should I prune?”
It was felt that 15 should say read not subscribe to magazines :>)

It brought many a chuckle because they were very behind in the reading department.
We also changed some questions to be broader than before.
Most of these questions conform to the questions I was hoping to ask at the Seminar but not
I felt asking about goals was a vital one we missed.

You can see that it leaves space for more questions I already added what are your Genealogy Goals. Ann , what where your topics?

Anyone out there got other good questions that we should maybe ask our members?
