Apologies to all, last minute changes were needed in April and circumstances caused the news to be poorly diseminated.
Meeting TIME and LOCATION
The Lower Umpqua Genealogical Society will hold its monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, 14 April.The Society will meet at the Family History Center in Reedsport on Longwood. Approaching from the High School it is on the right just before the Grade School. Enter by the door on the right; ring the Bell if the door is locked.
Bring something genealogical to add to the "monthly basket" which we are going to restart. Les will be presenting hard copy of section three of the Reedsport Cemetery for review. Sunnie has volunteered to bring refreshements. Members and the public are encouraged attend and bring along their ideas and suggestions for programs and projects. Non-member input would be greatly appreciated to develop plans and direction for the society in the coming years. Everyone is also invited to bring a family mystery or research challenge to discuss. Almost every person researching their family roots eventually encounters what some call a brick wall. Sometimes discussing the challenge with others can help a researcher get past the “wall.”
We have returned to the FHC because members felt it was a more useful venue for meetings. Guests and the general public are encouraged to attend.Every level of interest in history and genealogy are welcome.Participants are welcome to bring a snack or other goodie.
Lower Umpqua Genealogical Society was established in 2001 to provide a forum for individuals interested family history and the history of Oregon’s lower Umpqua and coastal area to share information and learning opportunities.The Society normally meets at Saint Mary’s Episcopal Church in Gardiner.
