News from Other Societies - Pinellas Genealogy Society

The Pinellas Genealogy Society will meet on Saturday, 20 September, at 11:00 AM in the Jenkins Room of the Largo Library. It will be preceded at 9:45 by their popular Q&A session on computers in genealogy.

This month's speakers will be Ellen Babb and Joyce Pickering. They will talk on the subject "Houses Have a Genealogical Past Also." We all know that our homes and those of our ancestors can hold clues to our family genealogy. Finding those clues can be challenging, however. This program may help in that discovery process.

Other classes of interest by PGS this month are:
