Research Globally - Learn Locally

President's Message
by Barbara Richards
Welcome to the new HGF website.  We are very excited to share our new website with you and hope you will give the website community your constructive comments.
We especially hope that all will use the new Surname Research feature. Members are encouraged to enter their surnames. You may find a new family member!
We are looking forward to an exciting year. Great speakers are on the program for the 2019/2020 season. We encourage you to become involved in Forum activities. We are hoping to have more Special Interest Groups and are looking to you for ideas. Please let us know your thoughts.
