The Williams County Genealogical Society held the first meeting of their new year on Monday, September 13, 2014. After a short greeting by President Pat Goebel, a delicious array of food was enjoyed by all.
Each person introduced themselves. We had two new members and two guests. Then the fun began!!! Vice President Mary Alice Roth started a game of genealogy word find. I think this was the quietest the group has ever been. The next game tested their knowledge of genealogy understanding in many areas. A handout of answers, with factual explanations of the answers, was given out. We all had a great time.
The next meeting will be held on Monday, October 13, 2014. Our guest speaker will be Joanne Allison. She will be telling of her quest to find her German heritage, travels to Germany and her recently published book. You may hear tips on how to locate your own German ancestors.
The purpose of the WCGS is preservation of county records and family research. Monthly meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, excluding July and August, at 6:30pm, in the conference room of the West Annex of the Bryan Public Library. The public is invited to attend all meetings.
