SAGHS Celebrates 40
May 2, 2013 - Join the Celebration!
The year-long celebration of 40 years of service to the Concho Valley genealogist culminates with a 40th Anniversary Celebration! As a treat for SAGHS members, the refreshments will be catered by Kenny Blanek! The event is open to the public - no invitation is required to attend. Please bring a friend to help us celebrate! The evening begins with refreshments at 6:00 p.m. At 6:45 p.m., we’ll introduce our special guests: representatives of local historic, genealogical, and heritage societies; persons who have supported SAGHS; past SAGHS presidents; and charter members. After announcements, the program will be provided by our speaker, Patrick Sparks. Plan now to join us for this very special evening!
History Displays Needed
In August 2013, SAGHS is again promoting genealogy through Family History Displays at the Stephens Central Library. This year, we’ll have twice as much display room as last August, requiring twice as many displays! Volunteers are
needed to create displays of their family history, a historic event affecting their family, historic events in the Concho Valley, histories of local towns,
buildings, businesses ... anything which will make a visually appealing, historically interesting display. If you are interested, contact Susan Ball at
Lawnhaven Cemetery Project
For genealogists, an early summer morning abstracting grave markers in a cemetery is a peaceful, reflective time. You can enjoy quiet moments and help the cemetery Committee by joining the Lawnhaven Cemetery Project. Lisa Mahler and the committee have already completed over 1.5 sections. Lisa has the abstraction effort well organized and she’ll train you in the procedure of taking photographs of the graves and recording just the names on a form. Susan Ball abstracts the information on the forms and the photos into a database. It’s fast and easy work, but the more workers Lisa has, the faster we’ll be able to publish the book on Lawnhaven Memorial Gardens.
If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact Lisa Mahler.
