Last Saturday I attended the 2014 Holiday Banquet hosted by the Irish Ancestral Research Association (TIARA) with my genealogy friend and colleague Sharon Daly. The banquet was held at the Historic Wayside Inn in Sudbury, Massachusetts. A traditional New England holiday meal was served, including a cheese and fruit tray, hot mulled apple cider, bread, New England clam chowder, a main course selection of boneless chicken breast with cranberry stuffing or baked salmon, mashed potato, squash, and chocolate cake. I wish to thank all of the officers and organizers of TIARA for a truly marvelous and special event.
TIARA hosts frequent Irish genealogy events and trips throughout the year. For additional information about TIARA please visit their website at http://www.tiara.ie.

Last Saturday I attended the Annual Meeting of the New England Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (NEAPG), held at the Tisch Library at Tufts University in Medford. Dave Robison, president of NEAPG, led the business meeting with election of officers for 2015. Two presentations followed after lunch. Brent Chadwick led an informative session entitled "Learn the Elements to Create a Family Sketch Template in Microsoft Word", and Margaret Fortier gave an illustrative lecture on "Visualizing Information for Genealogists." The well-attended meeting was an excellent opportunity to learn, connect, and share with fellow genealogists. The New England Association of Professional Genealogists (NEAPG) is a satellite chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG). NEAPG holds frequent meetings throughout the year.
