Something Special for August!

This Thursday, August 11 at 5:30 pm SL time (Pacific) ALL genealogists in SecondLife are invited to a very special meeting followed by a summer dance, at Just Genealogy.

The meeting will be held to discuss the organization of an official SecondLife Genealogical Society. Yes, we already have an award-winning chapter of the APG (Association of Professional Genealogists), but this new group will be for genealogy enthusiasts at any level of skill – beginners to experts, hobbyists to professionals. We can learn a lot from one another!

One hope for this group is  to have this new group become a partner society of FGS (the Federation of Genealogical Societies), which would provide our group members with the benefits of FGS membership: discounts, webinars, and more.

Following this meeting at about 6:30 pm will be a fun, summer dance, with our favorite DJ Jaffee Gaffer.

Please plan on joining us at 5:30 p.m. SecondLife Time (Pacific Time) to share your ideas for this new group!  And of course, you can’t miss the dance – They are always a great opportunity to chat and share our summer genealogy research stories and successes.

Hope to see EVERYONE there!!

Don’t Miss the Halloween Party!

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Hey guys and ghouls, come on out for some frightfully good fun at our Halloween Party, Thursday, October 29, 2015, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. SLT (same as Pacific Time).

Get Ready for Halloween!

Dress as your favorite ancestor, or just come as you are. Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

Get Ready for Halloween!

Watch where you tread. Graves of the dearly departed are all around. But as genealogists, we’re pretty much used to that, right?

Get Ready for Halloween!

Cross the bridge and enter the haunted forest, if you dare. Or just hang out and dance the night away – our favorite DJ, Jaffee Gaffer, will be spinning some spooky tunes!

Get Ready for Halloween!

Don’t be a DEADbeat like this guy and miss the party! 😀

Get Ready for Halloween!

Many, many thanks to DeeDee and Sherlock for setting up this supernatural sim! Now, here’s your hearse to the party!

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

*Song of the Witches from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

End-of-Summer BBQ & Dance Party

Last night, our First Annual End-of-Summer BBQ and Dance was held at Just Genealogy/Relatively Curious. DJ Jaffee Gaffer entertained us with genealogy-themed tunes like “We Are Family,” and “Who Are You,” and there was plenty of good eats for all to enjoy. Although there was more dancing than eating – which is pretty typical for SL – I eventually managed to grab a hot dog. We had a great time dancing and chatting until it was time to wrap things up.

Our next party will be in December, so watch this blog for details!
