“Stories of The First Families”

The Southern Indiana Genealogical Society will present “Stories of the First Families” at its July 2 program. Descendants of the Albin,
Dewees, Kepley, Lewis, Philippy, and Rakestraw families will share ancestral accounts of some of the area’s early settlers. The program
is in association with the First Families of Floyd, Clark, and Harrison Counties Project which identifies local pioneers and their direct
living descendants.

Program time is 7 PM in the Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library, 180 W. Spring St., New Albany,
Indiana.

SIGS invites individuals to join the First Families Project by verifying direct descent descent from an ancestor living in the tri-county
area prior to 1841. Approved applicants will receive First Families certificates and be honored guests at the annual History and Heritage
Celebration on October 1. First Families applications are online at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~insigs/FF_2014/ffproject.htm.
