The mission of Connecticut Ancestry Society is to promote genealogical scholarship, preserve source material, and exchange family histories.
Connecticut Ancestry Society members are responsible, ethical genealogists and family historians who share a special interest in southwestern Connecticut and its neighborhood, either by living there, or by having ancestry there, or both; who pursue genealogical scholarship through networking, educational programs, and publication of reference materials and research results; and who extend full cooperation to other genealogical organizations, record repositories, and public record custodians.
Our November meeting is this Saturday. The program is a workshop on using Microsoft Word for Genealogy by Janeen Bjork. She will demonstrate inserting pictures and captions, using footnotes, creating forms and more. Bring your laptop and participate with Janeen. She will be distributing electronic documents for you to practice with. Trumbull Public Library, 10:30-12:30.
The August journal has been sent to the printer for those subscribed to a postal journal. Electronic copies have been emailed to those subscribed electronically. Available to all members the past journals are posted in the Members Area of the website.
Connecticut Ancestry Society and The Trumbull Library host a Genealogy Roundtable on Saturday, August 22, 2015, 10:30 a.m.-12:00 noon, at Trumbull Library, 33 Quality Street, Trumbull, CT.
Join fellow genealogy researchers in sharing your problems and successes. Free and open to the public.
It happens to the best of us, and this month it happened to our printer. By accident, our printer grabbed the February journal email from our editor when preparing the May journal for distribution. So, yes, it is not your eyes. You did receive a February journal in the mail recently. The printer is working diligently to print and mail out the May issue to all of our postal members. In the meantime, remember you can see the latest issue in the Members Area of the website (the password is on your membership card).
Two additional volume year every name indexes added for free download. Check out the indexes on our Publications - Indexes page.
Also, the Table of Contents for each of our journals is available for review on our Publications - Past Journals page.
