June Genealogy 101: Will take place at the South Regional Library, 1601 Johnston St., Lafayette, LA on June 3, 2017 at 9:30 A.M.
This is a "heads up" reminder that Genealogy 101 that is held the first Saturday of the month will be held at the South Regional Branch of the library for the month of June ONLY. The change for one month ONLY was due to the kick-off of the summer reading program that would be occurring at the Downtown site. There will be many little people and their parents at that location. Plus parking may be difficult. So please remember that in June Genealogy 101 will take place at the South Regional Library, 1601 Johnston St., Lafayette, LA on June 3, 2017 at 9:30 A.M. Another reminder will be sent next week.
