|NEXT MEETING: Saturday, October 30, 2004, 1 p.m., Main Library,
TLL Fall 2004 is printed
The September meeting of TGS was at the North
Branch Library, our old home. There were some members we havenít seen in
a while: Sandra and Sonny Barre were here from Statesville, NC., also Nick
Porto from Donaldsonville, Mrs. Dot Smith and Mrs. Beverly Alford from
Schriever, and Diana Coupel who works at the North Branch Library. The
Matte Family Reunion was this weekend in Eunice, LA so Jess and Dorothy
(Matte) Bergeron had gone to it.
NEW PROJECT: We are trying to establish a 3 x 5 card file at
the library for genealogists (you donít have to be a member of TGS) to
list the families they are searching. Each card will contain the name of
one person, spouse, parents, birth and death dates and places, date of
marriage and place. The name and address of the person submitting the information
will appear on the back of the card. You are invited to submit your information
on each of your families or just those you are having trouble finding.
Here is a sample of the information:
Ed Hicks is doing volunteer computer training
at the Main Library, volunteer computer work for schools, overseeing the
genealogy volunteers at the library, and is our Vice President. If you
want to be a volunteer to assist people at the library, you must first
get in touch with Darryl Eschete at the library (985-876-5861)for training
(it takes about 2 hours), then Darryl will put you in touch with Ed to
get on the schedule. Our library volunteers work on Wednesdays and Saturdays,
so go and get the help you need. The volunteer workers are Marilyn Berger,
Blanche Brown, Marcie & Essie Cavalier, Juanita Chaisson, Maxie Champagne,
Cynthia Daigle, Sheila Rodrigue, Trudy Hebert, Gloria & Ed Hicks, Mary
Lapeyrouse, Betty LOCKWOOD, Wanda Moore, Barbara Templet, and Patty Whitney.
There are still some vacant time slots, so get in touch with Ed if you
can help. The schedule is made so a volunteer only has to work a couple
of hours once a month.
ACADIANS & CAJUNS - It was such a huge success the first time, it is being brought back. The Terrebonne Parish Main Library will host a presentation by Mr. Leryes Usie on ďThe History of the Acadians & CajunsĒ from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on 18 November 2004. Contact Carlos Crockett, in Reference at the Main Library 985-876-1733. This program was given in July of this year and there wasnít even standing room left for the crowd.
Don Hill is now a grandfather; the baby was born in Meridan,
Mississippi, but Don was so excited in his note he forgot to give us the
birth date! Baby Brianna Marilyn Anthony was born to his daughter, Stephanie
Marilyn Hill and her husband, Brad Tyrone Anthony, Jr. Maternal grandparents
are Don August Hill and Helen Rau, with step-grandmother Jill Marie Sims-Hill.
The paternal grandfather is Brad Tyrone Anthony Sr. Congratulations, Don!
