Clayton State Genealogy Group to Meet February 6

The Clayton State University Genealogy Group’s next meeting will be on Sunday, Feb.6, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., in room 200 of the Clayton State Library.

This year’s theme for the group is "Back to the Beginning." January was an organizational meeting, February will look at the census, and March will be Family Search research with a field trip to the LDS Family History Center on Lake Jodeco Road in Jonesboro.

Why start genealogy with the census?
What census records are on microfilm or digital?
Why search for the family in every census?
What information is available on the census record?
Where does the researcher find census records?
How does the researcher locate a person or family?

Interested parties should bring a laptop.

Membership in the group and all workshops are free. For more information, including times of the remaining meetings, contact Selma Blackmon at Her contact phone number is (770) 931.2609.
