SPECIAL NOTICE:

THE GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY IS TRYING SOMETHING NEW. WE HAVE ALREADY HAD TWO BEGINNING GENEALOGY CLASSES TAUGHT BY MRS. SARAH JANE OVERSTREET AND THEY HAVE BEEN A HUGE SUCCESS. STARTING JULY 20TH WE WILL BEGIN A SATURDAY CLASS. THERE WILL BE TWO OTHER SESSIONS FOR THIS CLASS TO BE HELD ON SEPT 21 AND NOV 16TH. THESE CLASSES WILL BEGIN AT 11:00 A.M. BUT THE BROWN HOUSE WILL OPEN AT 10:00. FOR THOSE NOT WISHING TO TAKE THE CLASS THE BROWN HOUSE WILL ALSO BE OPEN AT THIS TIME FOR RESEARCH. IN ADDITION SEAN MCLENDON HAS AGREED TO COME ON THOSE SATURDAYS TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT USING ANCESTRY.COM. WE WILL OPEN AT 10:00A.M. AND CLOSE NO LATER THAN 2:00 P.M. THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE WHO WORK THROUGH THE WEEK WHEN WE ARE USUALLY OPEN AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE ANCESTRY.COM WEBSITE.

THIS IS A TRIAL PROGRAM FOR US, SO YOUR RESPONSE WILL DETERMINE IF WE CARRY THIS INTO 2014
