Gear up for some hard hitting Genealogy work!!

Fall is here and summer activies should be winding down.  We have plans in GLHD and it's time to get moving on your genealogy research!

Saturday Sept. 28 (10:00 AM - noon) is the day members of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) will be here to help you with your paperwork.  This isn't just for women, either.  Men are welcome.  DAR members will help you look for links for any of the women in your family or for your own links for SAR membership. 

Friday Oct. 18 (5:30 to midnight) is our 33rd semi-annual Genealogy for Nite Owls.  We will have the library to ourselves and plenty of time for fun and research.  Our catered meal will begin at 6:00 and door prizes will be awarded all evening.  We have 2 instructional sessions planned for anyone who needs a break.  Ron Tetrick will talk about Land Records and How Can DNA Research Help in Genealogy?  The cost for the evening will be $15.25 for members of the Howard County Genealogical Society and $17.25 for non-members.  Please come in to the department anytime before Oct. 16 to sign up and pay the fee.

As a reminder - Next Monday, September 9 is the Howard County Genealogical Society monthly meeting.  The meeting begins at 6 and will end by 8.  There will be a short business meeting, refreshments, and a program.  This month's program will be a talk and power point about the Daughters of the American Revolution - DAR. 

Later in the month - Saturday, September 28 will be a DAR workshop for any one interested in joining.  As a matter of fact, you don't even have to join (I'm looking at you males in the audience).  We can help with your research also.  Perhaps your wife or daughter would like to join.  Or, maybe you are looking for a Revolution ancestor so you can join SAR or SR.  We will be happy to see you, Saturday Sept 28 10:00 until noon.
