We Miss You

Are you a current member of UJGS? If you haven’t paid your dues for 2015 yet, then you aren’t. Please update your membership by signing in to our web site and paying via Paypal, or by sending a check to the treasurer.

Once you’ve taken care of that, please come to our meetings. We miss you. We haven’t seen you in months. There’s so much more to do with your genealogy research and we’ve moved our meeting times a little earlier this year so you can get some research done at the Family History Library every month.

One of our meetings this year was so small and mostly new people that we just helped each individual with their specific research needs. But even if we get a full room, we will still have time after our presentation to help everyone find a little bit more about their family history.

So please come back.

Our next meeting is July 21st, which may not have a presentation, and our president won’t be back from Israel yet, but you’ll still have all the resources of the FHL to use.  How about sharing a story in August about the information you find in July?

New Email Delivery Program

Some of our members have not been receiving email notifications about our blog posts, and the calls to meeting are especially important. Today, I installed a new plug-in to the blog to solve this problem.

Because we were using FeedBurner, each person had to independently verify their email with that service. Some did not see the verification email and some newer members did not realize they had to to sign up.

By having this new plug-in, locally running, members can be added and verified without the extra step on their part.

We will still have the sign-up box on the blog just as before, and the plug-in can handle subscriptions and unsubscriptions automatically. I have set it to digest mode for everyone, so multiple posts in a day will not generate multiple emails.

This blog post is being used as the first test of the new list. All members who were not verified on FeedBurner have been added to this new mailing list already, so everyone should get this message by one method or the other. If all goes as planned, I will transfer the rest of the subscriptions to this new program, including those who subscribed but are not society members.

(If it doesn’t go exactly as planned, it will be in test mode a little longer while I figure it out, but the emails should still get out to everyone.)
