Chapter Mission and Vision
As a result of ongoing strategic planning meetings that were started in 2018, the Chapter now has a new "Mission" and "Vision." These strategic planning meetings will continue into 2019 with the intent of fulfilling our new mission.

Mission: To attract, welcome, inspire, educate and support a diverse community of family historians. To preserve records for the benefit of future generations."

Vision: To become a prominent and diverse community of family historians based in Montgomery County, Ohio.

Chapter Social Time
Just a reminder that social time begins at 12:30 p.m. prior to each month's meeting. This half hour gives our members and visitors time to discuss their own genealogy projects and brick walls. Also, refreshments are served during this time.

Bonus Meetings
Beginning at our January meeting in 2019, the Chaper will be hosting Bonus Meetings. These half-hour sessions will give the Chapter's board members time to present more individualized topics, answer questions with regard to genealogy projects, and provide more one-on-one mentoring to help members and visitors with their genealogy. Details and specific topics to be addressed will be announced later.

DNA Interest Group
The Montgomery County Chapter OGS hosts a local DNA Interest Group (DIG), which is free and open to the public. The meetings, held monthly, are led by Terry Anne Nicholson. Each meeting features a different topic about DNA exploration. Participants meet at the BarryStaff Building, 230 Webster Street, Dayton 45402. Next meeting:

Monday, February 25 from 1-3 p.m.
"I Have My Ancestry DNA Results, Now What?"
Ancestry advertises that it is the World’s Largest Consumer DNA Network with over 10 million testers. Many of us are included in that +10,000. Whether you are new to Ancestry, tested several years ago or are considering testing with Ancestry, there is much to learn about the tools that Ancestry offers and how to work with your test results. Diana Nelson will be the featured guest speaker at this session.
