Roots and Gold Dust publishes a monthly Newsletter for its members.  The newsletter is put out towards the end of each month, after our monthly meeting, to provide a recap of that month’s meeting as well as a highlight of the upcoming meeting.  In other words, the April Newsletter will come out about the first of April and will contain a recap of the March meeting as well as and introduction to the April meeting.


Other items addressed in the Newsletter include:

o   Upcoming events.

o   Reports on the latest books and/or other resource materials being donated to the Family History Center Library,

o   Resources for genealogical research.


The monthly Roots and Gold Dust Genealogical Society Newsletter has only been published electronically since December 2008, so that is all the farther back the Archives go.  To view one of the archived newsletters, please click on the one you wish to view.
