Welcome to the new FRECOGS website! We are continously adding new information all the time so please check out this blog when you visit the website for updates.
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE STILL ADDING INFORMATION TO THE WEBSITE SO CHECK OFTEN.
Current members, please change your password when initialing logging into the website.
In the "Members" section we have the following categories:
- Membership List
- Area Deaths
Under Profile, you will be able to change your password and mailing address. You will also be able to see the current status of your dues. Also you will be able to add the surnames you are researching.
Membership List is members only. Please do not share a members information without contacting the member first. We have not (as far as I know) any issues but wanted to remind everyone to be courteous with the information.
Newsletters. We have newsletters back to xxxx. As I was adding them to the website, I wanted to stop and read them all!! Definitely on my spring to-do list.
Area Deaths. I have collected many obituaries in my cemetery journeys. I am starting to add those to this area. If anyone else would like to add obituaries to this section, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also under "Additional Information" there are options for "Copy Available" and "Member" if you are willing to share the obituary.
A public feature is the Surname List. This will list the surnames only NOT the members contact information. A person will be able to see the basic surname information. If the person wants to contact you, they will hit the envelope icon by the surname and an email will be sent directly to you. It is your option to reply to the email or not.
Forums will be where we will be able to ask each other questions in the "Member to Member Connections".
Cemetery Listings is "Under Construction". I have added one cemetery so far with one entry for you to see. I am adding the entries from my research trips not from any other website.
Events Page will have our upcoming meetings and any local and/or genealogical events that may be of interest to our members.
Don't forget about our Facebook page where members of the group post interesting tidbits.
Our Links page lists local historical societies, genealogical societies, genealogy websites and members blogs and websites.
This is just an overview of the website. Please let us know what you think of the new website. If you have any information you would like to add to any of the sections, please let us know. Our goal is to be an interactive website that will be of value to our members.
Big shout out to Liz Stitely for working on this project with me. Also to our Board members for approving this crazy idea!!
Now let's get researching!!!
