Saturday, October 18, 2014
Harrisburg Public Library
2 West Walnut Street, Harrisburg
2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

GSSI is pleased to announce Sue Glasco, author and former Board Member of the Trail of Tears Association, will be our featured speaker on Saturday, October 18 at the Harrisburg Public Library. Her topic is "MYTHS AND MYSTERIES IN CHEROKEE HERITAGE."

After rearing a family, helping with the family farm, teaching, writing, and volunteering with creative and public interest groups, Sue Glasco considers she is “retired” with her husband Gerald at their beautiful farm home, Woodsong, near Marion.  Actually both are constantly busy, often helping others. Sue still writes.  In the past she has published several articles and books on farm life and genealogy.  She is well known for research on Priscilla, the Cherokee girl who may have gone from the Trail of Tears to Mulkeytown, IL.  Sue blogs twice a week.  The blogs reveal how active she continues to be.  Her presentation in October will be helpful to those researching Cherokee lines and to persons with general genealogical research interests.         

Please join us at 2:00 p.m. in Harrisburg on October 18. The GSSI Board will meet at 1:00 prior to the General Meeting.

Meetings of GSSI are open to the public; membership in the Society is not required to attend.  A fee is charged to attend conference sessions, but registration is not required to browse the Book Fair.
