2015 Volunteer Recognition   

Members Meeting and Luncheon

Volunteers are the life blood of non-profit groups like Charlotte County Genealogical Society. Without your service we would not exist to spread our passion of Family History to the Community.
 
Once a year we take time out to recognize our wonderful volunteers. 

Hats Off to You! Come out and let us have the privilege of letting you know what you mean to us.

Tips & Tricks
Meaningful genealogy requires thought. Develop a plan “ "Why am I doing genealogy?" Set goals of what you plan to accomplish in a reasonable time frame, i.e., go back 4 generations, go back to the immigrant ancestor, do only my father™s male line, etc.

Be sure to make a list of all living relatives when you start your genealogy research. Interview every one of them. Be prepared with a list of questions. Use a tape recorder for the answers or take very good notes. Respect the person's privacy.

Use a Correspondence Log! This includes the name and address of the person you have written to, what you requested, the date the request was sent and the outcome. Remembering every letter written is impossible. Follow up if you don’t get an answer within a month.
