We are pleased to report that our first emailed newsletter was sent on May 14. If you are an ECGS member who had requested electronic delivery, you should have received an email with a link to download our May quarterly newsletter. Members who requested regular mail delivery will receive their newsletter soon.
Beginning with the May issue of our quarterly newsletter, Edgar County Genealogical Society members may elect to receive their issues via email. A few months ago, members were asked to provide an email address if they wished email delivery. If you did not state a preference at that time, you will continue to receive your issue by regular mail. You may switch delivery options by emailing the Genealogy Library.
Edgar County Genealogical Society met on Tuesday, April 9 in the Historical Museum Annex. The program was an open discussion of “brick walls” and other problems in genealogy research. Two of the topics discussed were identifying locations in photographs and using a naturalization certificate as a clue to further searching.
Edgar County Genealogical Society meets bimonthly at the museum annex, 408 N. Main. Meetings are open to everyone interested in family history.
