WCGS Meeting - October 11, 2010

The Williams County Genealogical Society hosted its general meeting on Monday, October 11 in the Harman Room of the Williams County Public Library’s Local History and Genealogy Annex.  A member panel of attendees of the April 2010 OGS Conference presented a round-robin discussion of highlighted sessions and entertained questions from the audience.

Presenters included Pat Goebel, Donna Myers, Alice Meuleman, Roena Bayes, and Alice Shaffer.  Each member discussed her favorite sessions and conference events such as the importance of writing a narrative of one’s ancestors, software updates, tidbits on Pennsylvania and Maryland research, important internet search tools such as Google, and Civil War research to name a few.

The next meeting on November 8 at 6:30 PM, which is open to the public, will deal with the Underground Railroad.  Presenters will be Savannah Eicher and Genevieve Eicher.
