Edgar County Genealogy Library will be closed on Friday, April 18 in observance of Good Friday. The library will reopen on its regular schedule April 30.
Edgar County Genealogical Society met on April 7, at 7pm, in the Historical Museum Annex. The proposed bylaws were approved by unanimous vote. The bylaws are now located in the members section of the website.
A committee was appointed in October to review and revise the bylaws. Following advice in the FGS Bylaws Workbook, the committee decided to combine the ECGS constitution and bylaws into one document. Our thanks to the members of the committee for their work on this project.
