Morrison County Genealogy Society begins the 2014-2015 season

The Morrison County Genealogy Society (MCGS) would like to share the knowledge of the group with the public. The group is inviting everyone to come to a meeting, ask some questions about what its does, what its mission is and how much fun and addicting this hobby can be.

Members of the MCGS collect people’s names, birthdates, death dates, census records, obituaries, recipes, photos and stories. The group considers itself the caretakers of this information and works to preserve it for the next generation.

This year, the group is making it part of its mission to ignite the flame of genealogy in more people. The focus will be on getting people started or restarted doing their own family history.

MCGS meetings are held at the Little Falls Carnegie Library, on the fourth Monday of the month. However, the group does not meet in June, July or August. Programs begin at 6 p.m. Then at 7 p.m., a 30- minute business meeting is held. From 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., the program wraps up.

The Morrison County Genealogy Society meetings are open to the public and guests are encouraged to visit. Membership is $15 per year.
