    Ancestors, Antiques, and Artifacts
          This is our Special “Show and Tell” Meeting. We welcome all that have an interest in all things Genealogy related. Come and see how many of our members became interested in genealogy. Share your own history by bringing prize photos, artifacts, or heirlooms from your ancestors.
          We look forward to this event each year. We enjoy seeing photographs, clothing, jewelry, family history books or other books that talk about your family tree. Bring your item and share your story. Join us for a day to share and honor your past. Who knows, you may even find a cousin or someone researching your family tree! This is an exciting get-together because we never know what items will be presented. Don’t be shy! Bring something to share or just come to see what others are sharing.
