About our MGS Monthly Meetings

Montgomery Genealogical Society (MGS) meetings are now held bi-monthly on the second Sunday of the month, and are located at the Figh-Pickett-Barnes House on the corner of Court and Mildred Streets in Montgomery. Please note that beginning in 2013, the new schedule for the bi-monthly meetings will be as follows: February, April, June, August, October, and December.

Please note the October meeting is a week early.

Date: The First Sunday (early) - October 4th, 2015
Time: 2:30 p.m.

Location: Figh-Pickett-Barnes House, 512 South Court Street, Montgomery, Alabama

The October program will be given by E.E. Skip Campbell, who is the Director of UA College of Cotinuing studies in Gadsden, Alabama. Skip will give an interesting and humorous program about many old time funeral traditions called "Sittin Up With the Dead". You do not want to miss the one!

The admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be offered after the program, as always. Please come to enjoy the program and the fellowship with other family and local history enthusiasts--and bring a friend or two along with you!
