The Western Massachusetts Genealogical Society will hold their next meeting from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the at the Agawam Senior Center, 954 Main Street, Agawam, Massachusetts.

French - Canadian Research anyone? In September, we have the good fortune to have a Western Massachusetts native "come home" and spend an evening with us on the favorite subject of many of our membership. Pauline Cusson, board member of the American-Canadian Genealogical Society and an integral part of the success of several NERGC conferences, will be with us to discuss her specialty, French-Canadian, Franco-American and Acadian genealogy. Her topic will be "French Canadian Research: Bridging the Gap."
