We want EVERYONE to come to the Social on Saturday, March 2nd. It starts about 5PM and goes until 7 or 8. There will be entertainment after dinner. It is potluck, but you don’t have to cook, just pick up a side dish or desert that will feed 6.

We need to know if you are coming by Monday, February 25th, so Mary Barr can tell Coco how many tables to set up. If you haven’t signed up via our club calendar, please do so. If you can’t get to the club calendar, you can just call me (Andrea 825-6919) or email me (ahoust2@lsu.edu). I can keep a list.

Family History Center Personal Tour

The Family History Center East (Langley) is going to do a personalized tour of their center exclusively for our Genealogy club. The date is Monday, February 11th. The director and some of his staff will be doing the tour. We will be carpooling from the parking lot behind the Welcome Center at about 8:50 (we should leave by 9AM).

If you already signed up, I will be calling you or sending you an email this week. If you have not signed up and want to go, you can call me (825-6919), email me (ahoust2@lsu.edu) or just show up. That is next Monday. Their facility is really beautiful.

The group that went to the Family History Fair had a good time, and I think we learned a lot (at least I did). It was great to share a ride with a great group of people.

The flyer for the Family History Center is here: Family History Pamphlet
