On Saturday, July 14, Central Georgia Genealogical Society and the Nathaniel Macon Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will co-host a research day at the Washington Memorial Library in Macon. The library’s Genealogical and Historical Room has many books, microfilm and other resource materials for family history research. At the July 14 event members of the two organizations will be on hand to offer assistance in using the library’s resources for tracking down elusive ancestors.
The Research Day begins at 9:30 am when Librarian Muriel Jackson will provide a short talk about the Genealogical Room’s holdings. CGGS and DAR members will be available until 3:00 for one-on-one guidance. Attendance is open and free to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring their genealogy research notes, notebooks and pens. Laptops are permitted.
The Central Georgia Genealogical Society meets in Warner Robins on the second Monday evening of each month. CGGS membership is open to all. The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a nonprofit, nonpolitical women’s volunteer service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education and patriotism. The steps to becoming a member of the DAR include: tracing your family lineage; identifying your Patriot ancestor and completing the application process. Both CGGS and the DAR invite you to bring your genealogical questions to the Research Day event and find your family!
