|The Calhoun County Library, in conjunction with the Calhoun
Historical Society will be holding a six-week series of classes on beginning
genealogical research. The series will be held at 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.
each Monday evening, beginning July 9 and continuing through August 13
in the Knotts room at the library.
Classes will consist of introduction to the genealogy and history room
at the library, the various types of research materials available, and
how to use the facility for research. Also included will be instruction
in the use of the microfilm reader/printer and copy machine.
The course will offer "hands on experience" in a workshop environment,
with participants performing actual research on their family. Help
will be provided on an individual basis and participants will progress
at their own pace in performing actual research and documentation.
A trip to the Calhoun County Courthouse is also planned to help acquaint
the class with the records available there.
Classes are free of charge and will be taught by Norma Knotts Shaffer
and Virginia Weaver Buck. Funding will be through the "Lights On"
