Special Interest Groups

NHG has organized geographic Special Interest Groups for: British Isles, Eastern Europe, and Pennsylvania.  We also have Interest Groups focused on Writing Your Family Story, and on DNA & Genetic Genealogy.  Please click on Special Interest Groups along the left of this page for details and meeting times and locations. These groups meet outside of the regular North Hills Genealogists meetings, and focus on their specific areas of interest. 


AmericanAncestors.org at Northland Library

If you have New England ancestors, then the resources available from AmericanAncestors.org are invaluable.  Visitors to Northland Public Library now have access to these databases and other holdings of the New England Historical and Genealogical Society, along with the many other genealogy databases already available.  You can use the Northland computers, or bring your own and connect via their WiFi.


DNA Bootcamp

North Hills Genealogists is pleased to provide this series of training from Hi-Def Genealogy as a no-charge benifit to its members. Presented by Mary Eberle and produced by Thomas MacEntee, we believe that you will find this instruction useful and informative in learning the details of Genetic Genealogy and using DNA tests as part of your family history research.  These videos can be watched at any time, as often as you like.  For more details click HERE.
