The Big Share and Tell.Tables will be available to display items from participant’s genealogy collections, everyone is invited to share. The focus this year is ‘family heirlooms’, but anything related to your family history is welcome.
A family heirloom can be anything your family holds dear - a wedding gown, the grandfather clock, the family bible, the Distinguished Flying Cross, or even a cherished family story.
As you walk-about the room you will be impressed by the quality and variety of items and ideas you will encounter. There is much to learn from MCGS researchers about how they approach their family history research, so be sure to ask questions.
Each participant will be encouraged to address the group, providing context to their family history display and perhaps share a story as well.
About our Meetings:
The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.
We meet on the 4th Thursday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Thursday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in May, due to our Annual Picnic, nor in December, due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.
Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration or Annual Picnic; and in September, we have a workshop.
