Society General Meeting

Saturday, July 9, 2016, 2:00 p.m.

Tyler Public Library—Taylor Auditorium

Speaker: Kelvin L. Meyers

Program: “How Great Thou Art! How Great They Are!
Church Records!”


 

Underused and underutilized - this vast group of records can be a challenge to the “un-churched”. Determining the denomination in which your ancestor was a part can be the biggest challenge. The second challenge is to actually find those records. With these two things accomplished, many genealogical questions can be answered. Denominational newspapers will also be discussed.
