Mammoth Cave National Park and the Smiths Grove Women’s Club will cosponsor the 11th annual Genealogy Seminars and Cemetery Workshop on October 19 & 20, consecutively. The events are open to the public and free of charge.
“Past participants rave about what they have learned and the how-tos that they picked up from the speakers,” said Superintendent Patrick Reed. “Each year the sessions have revealed a bit more about the region’s history, and better preserved part of it, too.”
October 19th, Genealogy Seminars are being held at the Fellowship Hall located behind Smiths Grove Presbyterian Church on the corner of 2nd and College Streets. The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. and should conclude no later than 9:30 p.m. Light snacks will be served.
This year’s workshop will be conducted by Gail Miller, CG (Certified Genealogist). She will offer two 45-minutes sessions. The first is titled “Census Records: The Basic Genealogical Tool,” and the second is titled, “Using Land Records as a Research Tool.”
October 20th, Cemetery Workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Smiths Grove Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall. It will begin with lecture by University of Louisville Archeologist Phil DeBlasi; the demonstration portion will follow at the Hester Cemetery. Preregistration for the Cemetery Workshop is recommended (limited to 30 participants); call the park at 270.758.2417.
