The Computer Club of Oklahoma City Genealogy Study Group will meet from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the CCOKC Resource Center, 3000 United Founders Blvd., Suite 201.
Jim Ike will present “Don't Make These Beginner Mistakes.” Ike will provide examples of mistakes that beginning genealogists as well as experienced genealogists have often made.
Sessions on genealogy computer database programs “The Master Genealogist” and “Legacy” begin at 10 a.m. for researchers who use or are interested in learning more about the programs.

• The Edmond Genealogical Society will meet at 6:30 p.m. July 21 at the Edmond Historical Museum, 431 S Boulevard, Edmond. Mike Sheriff, an authority on law enforcement in Indian Territory and the Civil War, will share heroic tales of early day law enforcement in the Indian nations of Oklahoma Territory.
Sheriff said “Since the U.S. Marshal’s inception in 1789 to today, roughly half of the U.S. Marshal or Deputy or posse members who have lost their lives in the line of duty, were in Oklahoma.” He will share stories of a marshal’s work in the twin territories of Oklahoma from 1870 to late 1890 — some of these true exciting activities seem stranger than fiction.
