June StLGS Events

Now that the 2015 National Genealogical Society Family History Conference is history, StLGS is back on track with some fun summer activities planned for our members.

Scan-a-Thon

First, tomorrow, 11 June 2015, a group of volunteers will be in the office all day (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) working on scanning the thousands of pages of notebook material we have on hand. Our goal is to reduce the amount of paper we keep in the office and to provide additional space in our large classroom for more activities. If you have some time during the day, we invite you to stop in for an hour or two to help out. We will need people to scan, to proofread, and/or to enter data. We especially need people from noon to six. If you have questions, drop an e-mail to Karen Goode, volunteer coordintaor, at volunteers@stlgs.org or call the office tomorrow (314-647-8547).

German SIG Open House

Next week, on Wednesday, 17 June, we invite you to an Open House for the German Special Interest Group, from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the StLGS office. During that time, we will have volunteers leading office tours, volunteers with expertise in translating old German script, and volunteers who can help you with immigration research on hand to assist. Drop in for the whole time or just for a brief visit. Questions? Send a note to Carol Whitton, German SIG coordinator, at GermanSIG@stlgs.org or call the office and ask for Carol.
