Jefferson County Genealogical Society March Meeting

A Direct Link to the Past – City Directories


The monthly meeting of Jefferson  County Genealogical Society will welcome back popular JCGS speaker, professional genealogist Mary Roddy, on Saturday, March 17th, 9:30 – 11:00 am.  Mary’s topic “A Direct Link to the Past – City Directories” can fill in those gaps about ancestors that occur between census years and may lead us to clues for further follow-up research. Mary will demonstrate City Directories’ address searches, alternate spellings, advertisements, and how to ‘mine’ historical images that might not be available elsewhere. The public is welcome to attend JCGS meetings free of charge, though donations are gratefully accepted. Join JCGS members at the Tri-Area Community Center, 10 West Valley Rd in Chimacum. <>.
