WCGS Meeting News for October 2013 and Upcoming November Event

By Pamela Pattison Lash

It's time soon to set your clocks back this weekend and it's time to find out what's happening with the Williams County Genealogical Society.  Pat Goebel, Co-VP, has some info for anyone interested in the last meeting and the "field trip" scheduled for November.  Here's what Pat has to report:

The Williams County Genealogical Society met in October for a question answer session with Rex Bentley, former employee of a monument establishment. Members brought many questions about cleaning monuments, types of stones, how to restore letters on monument, etc. It was a very informative meeting for those present.

The next meeting will be November 11, 2013.  Since it’s Veterans Day, the meeting will be at the Veterans Memorial at the Williams County Fairgrounds at 6:30 pm. Mr. Robert Walkup, President, will give a guided tour of the museum. Outdoor lighting is LED lights so you’ll be able to see the displays.

The purpose of WCGS is the preservation of county records and family research.  Monthly meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, excluding July and August, at 6:30 pm, in the conference room of the West Annex of the Bryan Public Library. The public is invited for all the meetings.
