Lincoln-Lancaster County Genealogical Society - January 11 program

The Lincoln-Lancaster County (Nebraska) Genealogical Society (LLCGS) has announced its program schedule for 2011.

January 11 - Collecting Oral Histories on Our 35th Anniversary

New Year's resolutions may very likely include finding more information about your ancestors. An excellent way to do that is to plan opportunities to collect oral histories. Mary Kay Quinlan from the UNL College of Journalism and Mass Communications and a Nebraska Humanities Council speaker, will discuss effective methods of gathering oral histories and share some she has done. Bring your notebook to jot down ideas and to list people from your tree you may wish to contact in 2011. We'll also explore collecting oral histories about our society to celebrate our 35th year and enjoy cocoa and donuts in commemoration of the society's first organizational meeting.

Meetings are held at 7:15 p.m. at the Lower Level Theater, Dick Administration Building, Union College Campus, 3800 S. 48th St., Lincoln, Nebraska unless otherwise noted.
