From my mailbag:
This was a repost from months previous:
Winn Genealogical and Historical Association
I wanted to extend a invitation to anyone in all of the surrounding
Parishes to join the Winn Genealogical and Historical Association that is located in Winnfield, LA.
As part of your membership you receive a copy of our award winning
journal,the Legacies & Legends of Winn Parish, Louisiana, published in
April, August and December.
We’d love to publish public records, old newspaper transcriptions, cemetery censuses, or family histories from our border parishes not already covered by another genealogical society’s publication. You may email them to our editor, Peggy Beaubouef, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our main purpose is to research, record, publish, and preserve genealogical and historical information about the people, places, and events in the history of Winn and neighboring parishes. We also seek to promote and further an understanding of genealogical research, emphasizing sound genealogical proof standards as well as proper documentation and source citation.
We are in the process of transcribing a cemetery at the moment, with plans to do more in the future.
Our meetings are held on the second floor of the Winn Parish Health Unit Building, located at 301 W. Main, back stair entrance across from the Winn Parish Library. We meet at 10:30 A.M. on the second Saturday of January, March, May, July, September and November.
If anyone would like more information you can contact us by snail mail or email.
Our email address is email@example.com
With our mailing address being:
