September 5, 2015
On Saturday, July 25, Nancy Dupree of the Alabama Archives, conducted AlaBenton's 2015 Summer Workshop, which was well organized and packed with useful information, as usual.
Our next regular monthly meeting will be on Saturday, September 12, when Tom Mullins will once again share with us his latest IGHR genealogy classes classes held at Samford University. We can always count on Tom for a well-presented, fun and informative program.
On Saturday, October 10, Alice Duckett, another good speaker, an accomplished writer and one of our own valued members, will present a program packed with information on how to preserve family heirlooms! All our members who are fortunate enough to have tangible items, which have been passed down to us by ancestors or other family members will certainly want to attend this program.
We still have some genealogy T-shirts, which are fun casual wear and a nice way to promote genealogy for sale in the Alabama Room. If you would like to buy one, they are $10 for S, M, L and XL, and you can purchase a larger size for $12.
Don't forget--our members are our greatest asset. We thank every one of you who serves AlaBenton, in either a leadership role or a support role. Please keep up the good work!
Keep supporting your local Society, your local library, and especially the Alabama Room!
