The cooler weather is certainly letting us know that this year will come to a close in just a few short months. It is just about time to think about signing up for membership to the Godfrey Genealogy club in 2015! 2014 was a fantastic year for the club, full of incredible presenters and presentations, and we hope 2015 will be even better! Membership is $25 and allows you to attend as many of the monthly meetings as you would like during 2015.
This year we saw such presentations as how to use DNA to further your genealogical research, researching your New England ancestors, and how to get started writing your family history. The plan is for next year's presentation topics to be equally varied and informative! So far proposed topics include genealogists sharing stories about breaking through roadblocks in their research, overlooked sources of genealogical information, and how to best research ancestors from various parts of the world.
We're also looking for people who want to conduct presentations for Genealogy Club meetings! Do you specialize in a specific area of research? Or is there a story or topic near and dear to your heart? Why not share it with the Genealogy Club! For those who are interested in hearing about specific topics, please let us know. There are still quite a few meetings that do not have an assigned topic and we would love to arrange presentations that our members request.
After meetings club members are welcome to stay after and use this time to research in the library or converse. You are encouraged to bring your laptops and other research materials. You can call the library for more information regarding memberships and sign up.
