Internet genealogical services include Ancestry, Family Search, My Heritage, Find My Past, WikiTree and many others. The Internet Special Interest Group intends to review questions about these services and have a dialog on the advantages and features of the services used by members. This complements the features available from computer programs such as Family Tree Maker or RootsMagic that exploit the online databases available from these internet services.
The topic for April: Genealogy Research for Eastern Europe. This includes the modern countries of Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Austria, Hungary, Czechia, Slovakia, Romania and Moldova. Each of these modern countries has a history entangled with all the others, so there are common elements as well as particular national traditions that affect genealogy research. As you might guess from this list, the subject is quite broad, so the general research methods for this area will be covered, with a few specifics for each country.
