BEGINNING GENEALOGY CLASS SET FOR OCT. 24 AT MUSEUM
The question “Where did I come from” is one of the most basic questions in life, and it goes beyond the mythical stork. More and more people are seeking answers to this question. A beginning class in genealogy will help you find information on your ancestors. It will be held Saturday, Oct. 24, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs program room of the North Lincoln County Historical Museum. Cost is $10.
Carolyn Russell, who has been doing genealogical research for about 30 years, will teach the course. Russell is a five-year member of the Lincoln County Genealogical Society and also serves as historian for the Taft Pioneer Cemetery. She has taught this course several times. Bring a small computer or notebook and pen or pencil.
The Lincoln County Genealogical Society by-laws were adopted in 1985. It is a 501(c) 3 organization with about sixty members. Membership is open to anyone interested in genealogy and history.
