Remember the PGS general meeting (open to the public) at 11 AM on 15 November at the Largo Public Library. This month Jim and Terry Wilbur will be our speakers.
Jim and Terry have shared a love of genealogy since their high school days together. Both are retired teachers. They have researched their genealogy back 15 generations on both sides. Jim has found ancestors who fought on opposite sides of the French and Indian War, and both found that they were 6th cousins through their French-Canadian heritage. You might remember them as “hosts” on the PBS series Ancestors.
PGS is pleased and excited to have been able to secure them to speak with us on Franco-American/ French Canadian (meaning Quebecois) Research. The focus is on the descendants and ancestors of those that left Quebec to come to US...French speakers. The program is titled, " An Introduction to Franco-American/ French( Quebec )-Canadian Genealogy".
ALSO: PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP (OR JOIN FOR THE FIRST TIME)...CONTINUE TO SUPPORT YOUR GENEALOGY SOCIETY! EARLY RENEWAL HELPS THE PGS BOARD IN ITS PLANNING FOR 2009.
Hope to see you at the meeting.
