The Tri-State Genealogical Society will have a brief business meeting followed by a presentation by:
Past President of the Tri-State Genealogical Society (TSGS), John G. West, will speak at the September 13 meeting of the society. Mr. West has been researching his family history for over 50 years and will share some of his experiences with others in his talk “Genealogical Research Skills vs. Just Plain Luck!” West proved his ancestry back to a Revolutionary War Patriot that qualified him for his membership into the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR). As an active member of SAR, he has served as President, Secretary, Treasurer and currently as the Historian of his Ohio Valley Chapter. In the Indiana Society SAR, West has served State positions including his current office as State Historian and State Chair of the 4-H Youth Awards Program. West is very active in 4-H Genealogy, judging at county fairs and the last four years as an Indiana State Fair 4-H Genealogy Project Judge. West publishes the “TSGS Cruiser Blog” for the genealogical society http://tsgsblog.blogspot.com/ and enjoys presenting his patriotic & educational “Flags over America” program (with over 160 flags on display) to various organizations as part of the SAR Speakers Bureau.
As we study our “Family History” we can all learn more from the experience of others. This is a program you don’t want to miss, we will be looking forward to seeing you at the meeting and enjoying a very interesting and informative program.
You do not have to be a member to come and learn at the society’s monthly meetings.
