Ms. McGhie is a board-certified genealogist who loves to study and teach genealogy. She coordinates courses at genealogy institutes and speaks at national and regional conferences. Angela has served as the administrator of the ProGen Study Program for six years and is now on the board of directors.

She will be presenting History, Records and Context: Researching the Locations Your Ancestors Lived. Learning about the places where our ancestors lived helps us put them in social and historical context, as well as locate relevant records. Each time we trace our ancestor to a new location we need to take time to learn about the history, geography, customs, and records.

Meetings of the Carroll County Genealogical Society (CCGS) are usually held the third Monday of each month, March through May and September through November, at 7:00 p.m. in the Dixon Room, Westminster Library at 50 East Main Street, Westminster.

*Refreshments are available at 7:00 p.m. and the meetings are free and open to the public.

Please come to our meeting and bring a friend. You will meet other folks interested in family research 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. On Thursday afternoons, between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., one or more society volunteers will be on hand to assist researchers. Of course, this collection is available to all anytime the library is open.
