 Agenda for 15th October 2018 at 9.30 AM
This is our last meeting for 2018 before our Christmas Break-up Dinner on 3rd December

As usual the first part of the meeting will be Q&A conducted by Brian Parkes, followed by a coffee break.

 As a PC User Group, we presume that our members have computers equipped with Microsoft Windows. Our organisation has an arrangement with Microsoft that enables our members to download, at no extra cost, Office 365 ProPlus. This gives you access to ‘Word’, ‘Excel’, ‘PowerPoint’, ‘Access’ and ‘Publisher’.

 Your committee has plans to update our members knowledge on these “Apps” to Office 365. We assume everyone has, at least a workable knowledge, on “Word”, so we will start the process at this meeting by looking at “Excel” (the spreadsheet app)

 The Family History Group will commence its meeting at 1:30pm., with Colin Ackehurst as the Convenor. Colin has sent an Agenda to all our members who attend the Family History Group. If you did not receive the agenda, and would like a copy, please contact Colin Ackehurst at

The next meeting of the Advanced DNA Group will be held at 2:00pm on Wednesday, 31st October, at the Information Centre. If you are interested and are not receiving Colin Ackehurst’s e-mail about this meeting, please contact him on the e-mail address shown in the paragraph above.

As is our usual practice we will be concluding our year’s activities with dinner at the Dava Hotel, Mount Martha. This year it will be on Monday, 3rd December at 6.00pm. We will be collecting bookings for the dinner at this meeting.
