Hill County Clerk, Nicole Tanner, will be the guest speaker at the Hill County Genealogical Society on Monday evening, January 7th, at 6 pm in the Hill County Courthouse Annex Meeting Room, 126 South Covington Street, Hillsboro, TX. She will provide information on how to research County records in her office in the Hill County Courthouse. She will also advise what records have been lost or are no longer available. She will discuss the procedures and required fees for copies of County records, which include birth and death records. There are many interesting records in the County Clerk’s office that are seldom talked about.

In May 2013 Hill County will celebrate 160 years of existence, having been founded in 1853. Many area residents’ families date back to the founding of Hill County. The Hill County Genealogical Society would like to assist in establishing the histories of these families. This would be a great opportunity to start looking for the needed records to prove residency and lineage. The Hill County Genealogical Society also sponsors a First Families Certificate.

This meeting will be the beginning of several meetings to help individuals research their families, not only in Hill County, but across the world. Non members are encouraged to come and participate at no charge. Membership in the Hill County Genealogical Society, Inc., runs from January 1 thru December 31st. Meetings are held every month on the first Monday unless that Monday is a holiday and then the meeting takes place on the second Monday. Individual membership is $18.00 a year and $25.00 for a family. The Hill County Crossroads quarterly is provided to paid members. The HCGS is a member of the Texas State Genealogical Society.

For additional information please contact Cleo Young Davis, VP/Program Chairman, at cleodavis@sbcglobal.net or telephone her at 254-582-3603 in Hillsboro.

For Board Members there will be a meeting at 5 pm prior to the regular meeting.
