Next meeting – January 25th at 2 pm in the Dublin Public Library. Note that in 2014, January and April are the fourth Saturday. This accommodates library scheduling conflicts and Easter.
2014 meetings are scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays, January 25, April 26, July 19, October 18.
2014 Dues – If you have not done so already, submit dues to Secretary, Janey Laquey. You may wish to arrive early to do so before our next meeting and visit with fellow members.
Plan to share with the group – something about your personal genealogy goals, an activity you have in work or have completed, and perhaps your personal genealogical goals for 2014.
Submit your updated list of Names / Places you wish to research. Bring it to the meeting, pass it to me, or email it to Sheryl Rascher email@example.com for the April 2014 ECGS Journal. You may want to include some short story or information you uncovered in your research. The discovery that you found exciting is likely of interest to the group! Contributions can be but do not have to be a multiple page story. Your finding may be that missing evidence someone else has been looking for!
Since we re-organized in 2003, there have been changes in people, resources, technology, etc. This is the time of year we all make plans and resolutions. January is a good time to host.
Group discussion to:
• review ECGS accomplishments
• discuss how ECGS can help Members achieve their personal goals
• discuss ways for ECGS projects to benefit to the community
• establish and prioritize ECGS goals
• discuss how to best accomplish those objectives
Consider which ECGS project best supports your personal objectives:
• Historical Preservation – hunting and gathering
• Education – teaching and learning
• Society Collection – inventory, maintenance, acquisition
• Public Relations – getting the word out
Jot down your ideas for programs, workshops, field trips or any genealogical activities in which you are interested in participating. Share them with me, or Harrell Gilbreath firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a lot to cover in one or two hours, so please consider these points in advance of the meeting. We are looking forward to an exciting, lively participating group. We want this to be Your Society and to meet Your Needs.
Hope to see you there!
President – Erath County Genealogical Society
