Clayton State Genealogy Group to Meet, August 1

The Clayton State University Genealogy Group’s next meeting will be Sunday, Aug. 1, from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m., in room 200 of the Clayton State Library.

According to Clayton State Archivist Rosemary Fischer, the group will be helping beginners learn to do genealogical research.

“If you are new to genealogy and want to learn how to trace your family line and discover who’s living in your family tree, then this workshop is for you,” she says.

From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., the group will have speakers doing presentations on heritage societies, including the Sons and Daughters of the Confederacy and the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution.

“We will learn about these societies, their membership, and their meetings,” adds Fischer. If you’ve ever wanted to join and didn’t know where to start, then this workshop is for you.”

Membership and all workshops are free. For more information, contact Selma Blackmon at

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
