On Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at 6:30 p.m., the Craven County Genealogical Society will begin the evening with a cookie and punch reception where guests and members are welcome to discuss their research and learn more ways to find their ancestors.

At 7 p.m., the Society will host a free special program featuring an “Introduction To Researching Your Family Tree” that will focus on how to begin your research including what resources are available.  Several handouts will be given that will assist in your research.  The speakers for this program will be Carol Cherry, Ruth Powers, and David French, board members of the CCGS.  This is the free preview of the more in-depth, paid classes that will be offered on September 17th and 24th, 2016.

We welcome you to join us for this month’s meeting.
