From the LALGS list:
Members of the Lafayette Genealogical Society,
This is your reminder that the regular monthly meeting of the Lafayette
Genealogical Society will meet this Thursday, April 21, 2011 at the South
Regional Library, 6101 Johnston St., Lafayette, LA beginning at 6:00 P.M.
Our guest speaker will be Ms. Carolyn French, who has received her Masters
and Doctorate degrees in History and Anthropology. Please plan to attend
and and hear how she used old and new maps to determine the changing make-up
of a part of a Louisiana parish.
Members will be updated on the Grand Revile Acadien/Great Acadian Awakening
to be held October 7-16, 2011 when we will be hosting Stephen White, author
and premier Acadian genealogist, here in Lafayette. Please consider what
you may do to help the society in this endeavor.
Another reminder is about the Louisiana Genealogical & Historical Society
that will hold a seminar on April 30th at the Embassy Suites in Baton Rouge.
Registration fee is $35.00. John Sellers, a genealogists living in Texas,
will speak on “What Are They Saying About Your Family in the Paper?”, “Was
Grandpa His Brother’s Keeper?”, “Here Comes the Judge.” and “The Other
Louisiana.” He is both knowledgeable and entertaining, and may give us some
little gems to push us forward in our genealogical researches. Please let
me know if you are interested in going; several members are.
Dues will be accepted. Articles for our annual 2011 CD may be donated. The
Jefferson St. Library is now open and in working order! The genealogical
section is neat and complete. Kudos to all the librarians that made our
area open, user friendly, and available. Every member needs to make a visit
just to see the temporary library, and possibly USE it.
I look forward to seeing you at our meeting this Thursday evening.
Brenda Fuselier, President
Lafayette Genealogical Society
