Mission Statement

May 16, 2014

Dear Fellow Genealogist:

After discussing the idea of how we might keep you informed of genealogical activities taking place in Western Massachusetts, we have formed a group called the “Western Massachusetts Roots Events”.

Our mission is to distribute a monthly newsletter by e-mail to a list we have been building. In this way, we can keep anyone working on their Family Tree informed of genealogical events taking place in the area such as seminars, classes and workshops.

At this time we are compiling an email distribution list. If you would like to be added to or removed from the list, please contact us at wmarootsevents@gmail.com. If you or your group would like to be included in the listed events, please forward all information regarding the event, date, time, place, etc. to the same email address: wmarootsevents@gmail.com. The information should be in Arial #12 no BOLD, italicized or underlined copy so that we can copy and paste your information directly into the newsletter.

We need volunteers to help maintain our web site and Facebook page, and/or help in sharing the responsibility of creating and distributing the monthly newsletter. Please email us at the above address if you have any interest in volunteering.

Thank you, in advance, for any interest you may have in this ambitious endeavor.
