Meetings are usually held on the third Saturday at 2:00 pm in the Athens-Clarke County Public Library auditorium, but variations in this schedule are not uncommon. Meetings are announced in the COGS Quarterly, via email, and at this web site on the Meetings page. Although most meetings are free and open to the public, membership is encouraged to enable C.O.G.S. to bring in quality speakers that will help further our understanding as family history researchers. Dues are also used to purchase resources for local libraries and offset costs to preserve historical data.

Karen Ledford, author of These Men Wore Grey

Time: 2 pm

Karen Ledford author of the 8 book series These Men Wore Grey will be speaking at our August meeting. Her books consist of all identifiable Confederate Graves in the county featured along with their wives' graves. A genealogical profile of each soldier is included where obtainable. This profile includes: dates of birth and death, wife's maiden name, marriage date and location, parents' names and in some cases mother's maiden name, date and place of parents' marriage, siblings, and where possible, children's names. Military records include company, regiment, branch of service, and the county from which he served. Confederate and Confederate widow's pension from the state of Georgia are also identified. Visit her webpage to learn more.


Programs are subject to change. Please check back closer to the meeting date for confirmation. COGS members should watch for meeting reminders via email.
