|Welcome to the website of the Centre County Genealogical Society, a dedicated group of genealogists with a Centre County, Pennsylvania connection. A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the society strives to serve its members and the public through informative meetings and workshops, a quarterly newsletter, and the publication of various types of county records. All meetings are free and open to the public and are held September to June, usually on the first Thursday of the month. Special events such as our Annual Family Heritage Afternoon at the Grange Fair and genealogy workshops are held throughout the year.
Please join us on Saturday, March 22, 2014 for “Genealogical Resources Available at Penn State’s Pattee/Paterno Library” with Sue Kellerman, Judith O. Sieg Chair for Preservation. All are welcome!
“Genealogy 101 – Plus” – a series of 3 genealogy classes – will be offered on March 15, April 5, and April 26, 2014. Classes are limited to 10 people, so register soon!
Our newly elected officers for 2014 are: Ellen Copper – President, Al Jarrett – Vice President, Jackie Dillon-Fast – Recording Secretary, Vicky Droll – Treasurer, and Bonnie Ashcroft – Corresponding Secretary. The proposed change to the by-laws was passed to reflect the amendment: The Vice President will serve as President-elect and shall assume the office of President at the end of the President’s term. The Vice President shall also serve as the Program Chairperson. In the absence of or at the request of the President, the Vice President shall perform the duties of the President. Thank you to those members who voted in our recent election.
The Society was recognized by the Centre County Historical Society at the Historic Preservation Awards ceremony held on Sunday, October 20, 2013.
