"The Fraternal Order of Everyone"

By Ron Darrah 

Monday, March 14, 2016

    6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

   VCPL Rooms A, B & C


6:00 p.m. - Refreshments & Socializing

America is a nation of joiners and fraternal organizations played a big part in American lives. Many records were created from memberships in these groups, and those records may open doors for your family history. This workshop explores the who, what, when, where, and how of fraternal societies and their records.  

Special Note:  Ron Darrah's presentation brought to WVGS as a "THANK YOU" from the Indiana Genealogical Society for being  host society of the 2015 IGS Conference.
