TSGS Meeting Notice 08 Nov 2011


The Tri-State Genealogical Society will conduct its monthly membership meeting tomorrow night at Willard Library on the second floor beginning at 7:00 PM.

The meeting is open to the general public at no charge. There will be a brief business meeting followed by our guest speaker.

Stanley A. Schmitt will speak about "Civil War Evansville." Stan holds a Degree in History and has researched numerous historical and genealogical subjects over the past 30 years. He is currently Vice-President of the Vanderburgh County Historical Society, Advisory Board Member of the Canal Society of Indiana, member of the history committees for the Pigeon Creek Greenway and the Evansville Bicentennial. His interest in Evansville during the Civil War is the result of long time research of Willard Library's newspaper collection. Some of this information will be the basis of an online joint project by the Evansville Courier and the Vanderburgh County Historical Society for the Civil War Sesquicentennial. Stan had four Great, Great Grandfathers who served in the 38th., 42nd. and 44th. Indiana Regiments during the Civil War.

A door prize will be drawn from those attending, must be present to win.

Don Counts, TSGS President
