It’s time for the 45th Annual October Family History Project Fair and you are invited! It’s time to plan for your exhibit – some ideas to consider for an exhibit are old family photos, clothing worn by an ancestor, family histories, articles owned by an ancestor or articles made by an ancestor. You may begin setting up your display at 1:00 p.m. You must be a BGS member to enter your project. Think of the October Fair as a “Show & Tell” for genealogists. Ribbons awarded to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners. Silver bowl awarded to 1st place winner!
Also, if you do not plan to participate in the fair, your attendance is vital! We will be presenting the nominations for the 2012 slate of officers.
We will also have a used book and magazine sale.
Note: Please remember to bring a “dish” or drink for our refreshments table!
