Society Saturday – CCGS November 18, 2013 Meeting

Posted by: Eileen A. Souza

CCGS LogoThe Carroll County Genealogical Society’s upcoming meeting on Monday, November 18, 2013 at 7:30 PM features Rebecca Koford, a certified genealogist and popular speaker, who has been conducting research for clients since 2004.

She will be speaking on “Social History and the Family Narrative.” Have you ever wanted to write a family history? This talk will introduce you to the elements of a good family narrative. It covers why social history is important to your narrative, types of records to “flesh out” your story, personal historical detail vs. general historical detail, where to find resources online and offline, collecting and abstracting from those sources, citing your sources, and writing and rewriting your narrative.

Meetings of the Carroll County Genealogical Society (CCGS) are held the third Monday of each month, March through May and September through November, at 7:30 p.m. in the Dixon Room, Westminster Library at 50 East Main Street, Westminster.

The meetings are free and open to the public. An annual dinner is held each June and a holiday party each December. These are for members and their guests, with reservations made in advance.

Please come to our meeting and bring a friend. You will meet other folks interested in family research and genealogy and enjoy delightful talks that may help you in your own research. I look forward to seeing new faces!

You can also come early and take advantage of our large collection of books and other materials housed at the Westminster Branch of the CCPL. Of course, this collection is available to all anytime the library is open.
