COMMENTS: (President’s)

 

On January 27, 1988, The Anderson County Chapter became the 16th member of the South Carolina Genealogical Society. It was a major accomplishment for a number of us who made telephone calls, wrote newspapers, and posted flyers on bulletin boards announcing that interested people could form a club. in Anderson. Interest was definitely there ! At our first organizational meeting, we had 27 people to attend, along with Dr. Lynwood D. Jordan, who was so kind to help us get started in the right direction. Our first scheduled meeting was March 7th with 30 members in attendance. At our April 4th meeting our membership had increased to 58 members and potential members still are inquiring about joining our club. This may sound like bragging to some, well, you're right! We are very pleasantly surprised by the interest shown by everyone. We have very high expectations for our Club, and all- members are contributing their parts to make it a great success

 

We are planning on having our Charter Night at our June 6, 1988, meeting and invite everyone to come and help us celebrate. Since our charter states we will not be holding regular meetings in June, July, and August.  Our membership has voted to have workshops to teach the basics of research to anyone who has the “itch” to do family research, but not sure how or where to begin. Our goals are to teach a person not only what material is available to researchers, but how to use it in order to gain knowledge of our ancestors. For those who are interested in visiting, our meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at the Coleman Recreation Center at 1107 N. Murray Avenue, Anderson, SC 29622.
