2017 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.
All members are invited to this lunch, whether or not you have volunteered.

Tips & Tricks
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.

Soundex is a system of coding names for the census based on sound rather than alphabetical spelling. A variation called American Soundex was used in the 1930s for a retrospective analysis of the US censuses from 1890 through 1920. To save time, a free Soundex converter is available at www.rootsweb.ancestry.com.
[Census]
Prepare a census timeline before you begin. Review what you will find in the census you are searching. Work backwards from the most recent census. Expect spelling and age variations.
