Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Schaumburg Library has closed all events in their meeting rooms. Therefore CAGGNI is canceling all its meetings through March. We will be back in touch with any new information.
CAGGNI’s Storytellers’ Special Interest Group is for those interested in the DOING of family history writing and storytelling. Do you need an assigned topic? Do you need deadlines to help get you motivated? Then join this group.
