Your Source for Technology Help in Family History
The Utah Valley PAF Users Group is a grass-roots, non-profit, tax-exempt educational organization. It is devoted to fostering the use of technology for family history.
UVPAFUG is an organization of genealogists who use computers and Personal Ancestral File or other genealogy programs for record keeping. Although we meet in Provo, our members come from throughout Utah, from other states, even some from overseas. Check out our web site at www.uvpafug.org to see what is happening.
- Monthly Meetings
We hold meetings on the 2nd Saturday of each month, except December, in the Edgemont area of Provo, Utah. Meetings are open to the public. They generally include a main presentation and are followed by six to eight classes on topics relating the use of technology in furthering your family history. Subscribing to this blog feed will notify you of our upcoming meetings and announcements.
- Monthly Newsletter
Our monthly publication, PAFology, is sent via email and/or snail mail to members of the group (see how to become a member) about the time of each meeting. It includes articles of general interest to those using computers to further their family history. Members may choose to receive the newsletter via snail mail or email or both. Selected articles of lasting interest are also published on the web for public access.
- Updated Listing of Utah County Family History Centers
Volunteers from the group keep in touch with FHCs in Utah County, Utah to maintain an updated list including address, phone, hours, hardware and special collection information.
- Video Lending Library
Videotapes of many main presentations classes that seem to have the biggest interest demand at our monthly meetings can be borrowed or purchased by members of the Utah Valley PAF Users Group. A list and instructions is available on the videos page.
