The Carroll County Genealogical Society invites you to a Mid-Summer Genealogical Event. Please join fellow family researchers for an entertaining and informative program featuring historian and genealogist Mary Mannix. She will offer ideas on how to responsibly distribute the kinds of possessions genealogists gather over the years, with her talk: "Thinking About Your Stuff: a Genealogist’s Obligation" This program is designed for those with concerns about what will happen to their genealogical research, for those with collections of family items, or for anyone who would like to downsize from years of accumulation. The event will be held at the Yingling Learning Center, Cockey’s, 216 East Main Street, Westminster. Light refreshments will be served from 10:00 to 10:30 followed by the presentation. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. To register call Mimi Ashcraft at (410) 848-3752 or Eileen Souza at (410) 549-2330 or email: New members joining at this event will receive a 20% discount on their first year’s dues. Door prizes
