PGS Events for the Week of 12-17 September

 Monday, 12-Sep-22 at 1:00 PM. Bounty Lands. Bounty Lands were used from before the Revolutionary War up until 1858 to reward military service and stimulate enlistment. Those records can confirm military service and even locate ancestors during and after hostilities. This class gives the history of the subject, what records are available, and where to find them. Summers, hybrid--Local History Room and via Zoom.

Register in advance for this meeting, if attending via Zoom at:

Saturday, 17-Sep-22 at 11:00 AM. Program Meeting--Reverse Genealogy: Locating Living Relatives. Let’s step away from researching our deceased ancestors (admittedly who are easier to find) and attempt to locate living relatives to keep the tree up to date or invite them to a family reunion, but also to find who might have great-great-grandma’s family Bible or photos of Civil War ancestors or letters written from the home country.  We’ll discuss online sites that allow us to look for potential living relatives at no cost. Plus, we’ll explore methods for contacting them without sounding like a scam artist or hacker! Katherine Wilson     hybrid--Jenkins B and via Zoom.

This will be a hybrid meeting held in-person in the Meeting Room/Jenkins B and online via Zoom. Registration is only required for Zoom attendees.
