NEXT MEETING: May 26, 2012, 1:00 p.m., Main Library 151 Library Dr. Houma, LA 70360

What a wonderful change we had at the last meeting. The scheduled guest speaker had to cancel at the last minute. So Jennifer Hamilton with the Terrebonne Parish Library agreed to do a presentation researching for your ancestors on the 1940 Census. She showed us how to find our ancestors by address and once all the names have been indexed you will be able to find their names. But this little write up does not do justice for the presentation Jennifer did, you would have had to be there to truly appreciate everything she showed us. Are you having trouble finding your people in the 1940 Census, visit Jennifer at the main library.

The Lafourche Heritage Society's 36th Annual History and Genealogy Seminar will be held on August 4 at Envie Restaurant in Thibodaux, Louisiana from 8:30 to 3 p.m. If you have an exhibit that you would like to display contact Sandra Boudreaux at (985) 448-1251. Pre-registration is required for the meal to be included. Members will receive their registration. The Seminar is open to the public and registration will be taken at the door but the meal will not be included.
