Minutes of the Lafayette Genealogical Society

February 21, 2011

Please remember that the February meeting of the Lafayette Genealogical Society
will be held on the third Thursday of the month, February 17, 2011, at the South
Regional Library, 6101 Johnston St., Lafayette, LA  70503, beginning at 6:00 P.M.  Yours truly, me, Brenda Fuselier will be giving my presentation on "Using Fr. Hebert's Southwest Louisiana Records."  This is a PowerPoint presentation of
the contents of each volume with additional comments, and  requested comments by members as time allows.

Another reminder is for our road trip to Lake Arthur, LA  for the "Arthur Avenue Heritage Tour." on Wednesday, February 23, 2011.  This is a family home that is being organized with family memorabilia to showcase one family's history.  We
can use this example to help facilitate our organization of information we have collected to make our family history relavant to other family members.  THINK: "We are the family historians;we are the story tellers!" 

Members and people interested in genealogy may pay their 2011 dues of $20.00 at the meeting Thursday evening.

And what Surnames are you researching?  Please turn in a list to me for "Les Memoirs de Lafayette," for publication on our annual CD. It may include possibley more than the  16 surnames found  on the end line of our four-generation pedigree chart.  Thank you's to those members that are contributing for "Les Memoirs."  Feel free to contribute pictures, stories,
articles, or anything of possible interest to our members.

There being no further business, it was moved and seconded that the meeting be closed. Members were thanked for providing refreshments and guests were invited for coffee and refreshments.

  President Brenda Fuselier
