Merced County Genealogical Society
How it all began . . .
In 1983, Dianna Kauth
called a few friends together to meet at her house in the Winton area to
discuss the possibility of forming a genealogy society. Following this
meeting an article was placed in the Merced Sun-Star and on July 23,
1983 seven ladies met at the Merced County Library for their first
meeting. The ladies were Bea Anderson, Helen Green, Rosalie Heppner,
Dianna Kauth, Harriet Ledford, Carolyn Lemas, and Barbara Mckee.
One of Dianna's friends in the Bay area (Carolyn Sherfy) was very active in genealogy and gave us a lot of help in the beginning, especially helping with the By-Laws.
Slowly the group grew from
the original seven to a membership now of 130. Of the original seven Bea
and Rosalie have continued their membership. Helen and Dianna are
deceased, and Barbara moved to another state.
