The Robeson County Genealogical Society meetings are held the first Saturday of the month in Lumberton, NC at 2:00 p.m. at the auditorium across from the Robeson County Library, Lumberton, NC unless otherwise noted on this page.

Our next meeting will be at 2pm this coming Saturday, October 3rd, in the HLJ Genealogy and Local History Room of the Lumberton Public Library.

Our featured speaker will be Kelly Mecifi, Technical Services and Reference librarian with the Robeson County Public Library system.

She will tell us about the improvements recently made in the Genealogy Room, explain the recently updated cataloguing system so we can readily find material on the shelves, advise us on the Library’s works-in-progress for the ’Room’s collections, and, time allowing, show us how to use the new microfilm reader and access the computer.

At the end of her presentation, she will accept questions, comments, suggestions, or ideas that would facilitate a successful research experience in the ’Room.

I will have a report on the progress of the Odom Collection up to the present date, as well as examples of how the records are compiled and will be filed. How to handle Nash’s handwritten papers as well as when and how to make them available to the public will be discussed.

I know many of you already have other activities planned for this Saturday, so if we don’t have enough members for a quorum, we will readdress these subjects at a later meeting.


Please check the Guestbook. There are folks that you might be able to help!
