We the People: Researchers to examine government records database

BY SHARON BURNS, For The Oklahoman Published: April 7, 2014

The U.S. government has been collecting information about interactions of its citizens with various government organizations and the events of this nation and have posted the information and/or posted the method of obtaining much of this information through the www.usa.gov website.

Jim Ike, with the Computer Club of Oklahoma City Genealogy Study Group, will present “USA.gov: The Window into the USA Government Records” at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Computer Club of Oklahoma City Resource Center, 3000 United Founders Boulevard, Suite 201. He will discuss a list of agencies, departments, bureaus, branches, etc. and show examples of information that can be found.

Sessions on the genealogy computer database programs “The Master Genealogist” and “Legacy” will begin at 10 a.m.

For more information, go to the group’s website at www.rootsweb.com/~okggccoc/, or e-mail Jim Ike at jeike@atlinkwifi.com or Walt Stoyanoski at waltsto@yahoo.com. The society’s website also has information on programs, handouts from past programs, links to genealogical and computer websites and a surname and location research lists from our membership.
