PGS Events for the Week of 12 January

Here is what's happening this week at Pinellas Genealogy Society:

Monday, 13-Jan-2014 at 6:00 PM--City Directories in Genealogy Research--City directories are a valuable genealogy resource. They can give information on household composition, residence and business location, and insights into the lives our ancestors led. They can also be used as a substitute for the US Federal Census, or used in conjunction with the census to locate hard-to-find ancestors. This class explores the history of this resource, the research value of the information they provide, and where to find the records. Summers, Local History Room, Largo Library
