CAGGNI (The Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois) is a group of amateur genealogists who are committed to effectively using technology and the internet in support of their research activities.  

Monthly meeting topics cover a broad range of subjects of interest, including software, tools, techniques and methodologies. Additionally, monthly newsletters, support for computer and genealogy issues and internet surname exposure are among the benefits of membership. 

A wide variety of genealogy software packages are used by the members as well online trees and database websites. We are also interested in personal websites, digital photography, handheld apps and other ways to share our family histories.
