Here is your opportunity to make even more things happen for LLCGS.  We have projects planned for the coming months, to support our mission to
Preserve, Educate and Promote Genealogy
Last year LLCGS received over $1500 from our members and supporters.  With those contributions we have been able to purchase a dedicated computer and large flat-bed scanner.  Volunteers have been busy digitizing volumes from our Library and scanning and indexing original early 1900 Lancaster County Probate Records which will be made available via the LLCGS website to members and the public!!  We are finishing up the digitizing project of original early Lancaster Marriage records.  See our website for details.
So mark your calendar. Join others and help LLCGS preserve even more records this coming year!!   Watch this space for more information in the coming weeks.

May Monthly Evening Meeting

Thursday, May 19
Looking at Genealogy Through Fresh Eyes  (Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
First Lutheran Church, 1551 S 70th St., Lincoln
Take time to take a fresh look at how you do genealogy.  Are there some old habits you should visit, perhaps get rid of?
We'll provide introductions to 3 paths you can consider on your way to getting rid of cobwebs and clutter and adding the pizzaz you want.  
It's as easy as 1 -  2 - 3  !!.
1.  We will view the first of  genealogical "how to's" presented by John Coletta on a new DVD series 
2. We will view an example of the Lisa Louise Cooke webinars for new skills and genealogical techniques.
3.  We'll hear a report of new ideas and trends from this month's National Genealogical Society Conference.
