    The Indiana Chapter of Palatines to America Fall Meeting will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014 in the Willkie Room of the Athenaeum. The presenters for this program will be Alexa and Frank Merrill who are the coordinators of the Fishers Family History Center. They will give three presentations on features of FamilySearch and have been requested to gear their examples—as much as reasonably possible—to German genealogical research. The presentations will be: (1) Features of FamilySearch; (2) FamilySearch FamilyTree; and (3) an open question and answer session where you can ask specific questions about FamilySearch and have them answered. We feel that these presentations will enable you to get up-to-date in the many recently enhanced features of this valuable website and to enable you to use it to the fullest extent in your genealogical research.
