AlaBenton Genealogical Society Meetings
2015 Programs

2nd floor, Anniston-Calhoun County Public Library (Corner of Wilmer & 10th Street, Anniston, AL)

Monthly meetings take place at 1:00 PM on the first Saturday of each month (except for May, June, July and August) unless that Saturday falls in a Holiday weekend. (Holiday weekend is defined as any weekend in which a holiday falls on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday of the regular meeting day).  Please pay careful attention to the dates shown below for those months.  Since the meeting space occasionally has to be changed from the Ayers Room to the Anniston Room, be sure to check in at the sign-up table outside the Alabama Room.  If the table isn't set up, either you're way too early or it's the wrong day!
