Have you read our newsletter lately?
Our next newsletter will be issued in early October and our newsletter editor says, "This is the best issue yet." I can't wait to see it myself, but I'm astounded at the number of members who have not read the newsletter -- about 17 percent of our members have never logged on to the Members Only section of our website, which they need to do to open each issue if they have a digital subscription.
In case you are in need of some instructions on how to find the newsletter, here they are:
Enter https://pgcgs.org into your Internet browser window. From the menu on the left, click on Members Only. Enter your user name and then your password. If you don't know your user name, send an email to our membership chair at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask Karen to send you your user name. If you don't know your password, click on the question mark near the password box. You will receive instructions on how to change your password. Select a password with no capital letters (these are frequently entered incorrectly -- that Shift key is a tricky guy!) and no special characters -- use letters and numbers only. Make sure you have a safe place to record your password to refer to later.
Once your password is changed, log on to the website and then select from the menu under Members Only, Newsletters. On the screen that comes up then, the most recent newsletter should be on the top left of the list. Click on that green box -- for the next newsletter in October, click on Volume 55, then select Issue #2. The newsletter will open in a new window where you may read it, print it, or save it by printing to PDF and saving it in a file on your computer.
The Bulletin is chocked full of articles on records in Prince George's County. Don't forget, there is also a Name Index for each volume and a Subject Index for the first 53 volumes. The Subject Index for Volume 54 is under the tab marked Volume 54, along with all four issues of that volume. A volunteer is currently working hard on indexing both names and subjects for Volume 55, and it will be posted online when it is complete.
If you have suggestions for future articles, please email them to email@example.com. If you would be interested and willing to write an article for submission, please also email us about that.
