We hold meetings on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM, at the South Regional Lafayette Public Library located at 6101 Johnston Street. This is with the exception of the month of December, which is when we have our annual membership banquet.

We also hold Genealogy 101 Work Shops on the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 AM at the Main Lafayette Public Library located at 301 W. Congress Street Lafayette, LA. 70501.   A Genealogy 101 Work Shop can consist of a round table discussion or genealogy presentation.
