Everyone needs friends and the Genealogy and Local History Department is very fortunate to have a whole group of friends called the Howard County Genealogical Society. This group provides support by way of volunteers, financial support, and moral support. This group helps out in the department, helps with events that we offer to the community, and even purchases books for the collection. This year’s officers are President – Marcia Ford; 1st Vice President – Patty Callahan; 2nd Vice President – Cindy Stover; Secretary - Tracey Morris; Treasurer – Janice Blanchard. You do not need to have ancestors from Howard County to join the Society, just an interest in family research. Dues are $15 a year and include the quarterly newsletter. Meetings are held at 10:30 a.m. on the first Saturday of the month November through March and at 6:00 p.m. on the first Monday of the month April through October. Call the Genealogy and Local History Department at 450-5885 for more information.
