Presentation: Family History
See different ways to record and show off your family’s genealogy. Gather tips and clues from others. Join us if you’re just beginning your family journey or have been learning about them for years.
To have lots of choices to look at, please bring your own charts, notebooks, family group sheets, reports, graphs, pictures, etc. for or from one of your families to share. Show us how you organize your research, how you work at knocking through those bricks walls. Don’t worry if your work isn’t “finished”...no one’s is!
“I think that I shall never see, a finished Genealogy”
Tables will be set up to display what you choose to bring – and to see the work of others. Here’s an opportunity to graze the room, view others’ ways of doing things, ask questions, and start discussions.
The focus will be on where each of us is in our genealogical journey – whether you bring items to display or not. (But we hope everyone will bring SOMETHING – even a friend interested in genealogy!)
Each of us will hopefully come away with at least one new idea. Come be amazed at how many ways people express their family history. WALK-ABOUT!
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 Wednesday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday, 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.
