CKCS Tech Night - Monday - September 09 at 7 pm

Beginning Genealogy

Presented by Johnna Walton, President Kentucky Genealogical Society

Have you thought about researching your family tree? Maybe you have even begun collecting information about your family. Whether you are just thinking about it or have done some work in this area you are bound to learn something in this beginner-level presentation on genealogy. We are privileged to have the President of the Kentucky Genealogical Society, Johnna Walton, for this interesting and informative presentation. During this Tech Night you will learn where to start, and about the tools and websites you should use.

Johnna wears many hats. She is the Assistant Branch Manager at the Lexington Public Library. As of the Spring 2018 semester, she is a co-instructor for “Genealogy Services in Libraries”, a 16-week course at Bluegrass Community and Technical College (bctcs.edu) for library staff. She also serves on the board of the Lexington History Museum. Genealogy is not only part of her professional life but a passion in her private life. Johnna has been researching her Dingus and Dotson family hard-core since 2006.

If you have any interest in genealogy this is a presentation you should not miss. Feel free to bring friends and family along!



Kroger Community Rewards Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

If you are not participating in Community Rewards, you can sign up to have Kroger donate a portion of every purchase you make to CKCS.

Steps to create your Kroger account:

  1. Go to the Kroger website at https://www.kroger.com
  2. Put the mouse on Savings and Rewards to see the options
  3. Click on Kroger Community Rewards
  4. Scroll down until you see "I'm a Customer"
  5. Click on "View Details" to go to the Sign In screen
  6. Next, click on Create an Account
  7. Fill in the requested information (see note 1 and 2 below)
  8. Near the bottom of the screen click on Create Account

Note 1: You can go to most any email service website and create a new email address just for your Kroger account. Kroger will send you emails frequently and will offer the opportunity for receiving a lot of emails with coupons, etc.

Note 2: Not your email password, but create a new password just for Kroger.

You can do this anytime during the year, but right now is best for CKCS.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. Shortly after you enroll, you will see a message on your Kroger purchase receipts, indicating that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS for you. The size of the gift is proportional to the amount of your purchase.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
