27 April 2014 - The GENCOM Genealogical Society will hold their regular monthly meeting on Sunday, 27 April, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the Broadmoor Branch Library, 1212 Captain Shreve Drive, Shreveport. Our April meeting will cover how to find our women ancestors. This can be a challenging part of our research because women change their last names when they marry and sometimes we have no idea in which direction to go to find this new surname. We will give some tips and guidance in finding these elusive ancestors. We will review a special case where simply going back over the land and court records revealed the married name of several female ancestors. Everyone is welcome and the meeting is free and open to the public. For information call (318) 773-7406 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
