Welcome to Our TGS Forum Boards
Members Helping Members!
Forums are online discussion areas where TGS members can hold conversations with one another in the form of posted messages. Within each forum topic area, each new discussion is called a message "thread". Each thread can be relied to by as many people as wish to respond.
Only current TGS members who are logged into the website will be able to add questions or responses. Some forums will be visible to the general public, while others are only visible to members who are logged in. The Titles of the forums will indicate which is true for each of the topics. To aid in solving research questions, some forum topics will allow upload of attachments. This is also indicated in the topic heading area.
By default, only the 5 most recent message threads will be shown under each topic area. To view all messages in the topic area, click on the name in the topic header bar or select its name in the dropdown at the top of the page.
Reminder: These message boards are an opportunity for us to help and support one another as genealogists. Our goal is to help everyone be successful in their family history research. There are no stupid questions, and everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Please be kind, and respectful of one another in your comments. The message boards are moderated, and disrespectful comments will be removed.
