I’ve indexed names, places, and things from newsletters going back to 1973.
Now to focus on my genealogy society plans. Thus far, I’ve created a name and ideas for meetings, reserved meeting space, came up with ideas for a motto and mission statement, etc. Since I’m hoping to group together my county and 4 counties next to us who don’t have gen societies, I would like to create a Board of Directors with one person from each county. I’ve contacted the local newspapers of each of the 5 counties to find out about posting an announcement in their community section. I’ve created a website, email, and Twitter (still working on a Facebook page though). Next step: Contacting the local library and historical society about this newly forming society and leaving fliers. Then, contacting the libraries and historical societies of the other 4 counties and leaving fliers. I hope at least a couple people show up.
