May Meeting to Feature Presentation on Lineage Societies

The May 16 meeting of CCGS will feature a presentation from Lilly Cleveland entitled "Lineage Societies - Taking the Mystery Out of the Magic". Have you joined a lineage society, or are you interested in doing so? Lilly has joined 8 societies and has worked for 3 including the Alden Kindred of America, New England Women, and Colonial Dames. She will discuss the overall process and the evidence required to join a lineage society. Learn how implementation of genealogical research standards can lead to the emergence of interesting stories about your ancestors.
