I've been threatening to start a blog for the Society for some time now. Well, here it is!!! (Further into this blog I'll be referring to the Christian County Genealogical Society as CCGS). As this is our first I'll give you a synopsis of who we are:
We have monthly Board Meetings on the last Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm being held in the Pence Bldg. of the Christian County Historical Museum . . . anyone is welcome to attend. I will add that the people on the CCGS Board are some of the greatest you'll ever meet! Our board meetings are enthusiastic and enjoyable with everyone participating. All of our Board members have been residents of Christian County all their lives so know quite a bit of the county. I think I'm the only 'implant', coming from Springfield,
Researching Is available during our opening hours Thurs.-Sat. 10:00am - 3:00pm from April to December. December thru March only on Saturday's 10:00am - 3:00pm. We also have free wireless H.S. internet service for your researching pleasure.
I've been with the CCGS for about 6 years and I'm still amazed at the amount of material we have available in our Library. We've also a notebook entitled "Library Holdings", also on our website, with every publication we have listed, whether it pertains to Christian County or other counties/states.
For those of you who cannot come to our library we have as our genealogist, Jeanette Johnson, who you can contact via firstname.lastname@example.org for researching our records or you can contact her via snail mail.
A Microfilm reader / printer is also available for use with our microfilm collections. And we keep adding microfilm as we get the funding. A copy machine is available also.
