[APG Public List] Genealogical Societies

Just a thought, you might consider gathering together the nucleus of the
"believers" of your past members and discuss arranging an all day workshop
which might consist of basic genealogy to more advanced.  One person can
probably do the speaking part.  Select a good representative of genealogy in
the Missouri area and invited them.  It appears that things have become
stagnant and your area just needs to be rejuvenated.

If this sounds feasible, let me know and maybe I can offer a few more
pointers about how to make this work.

Hello All,
I am the president of our genealogical society here in Mississippi County,
Missouri. The society has existed for about 25+ years. After I joined twelve
years ago, the few members who were with the group told me that there just
was not as much interest. At one time we had 60 to 70 members and most of
them were from outside this area. We are now at the point that we no longer
have meetings and have stopped publishing our MUDDY ROOTS quarterly
My opinion is that people have other things they would rather be doing.
Also, the society we live in now, people have schedules, work hours are
different and the digital age in which people think they can just sit down
in front of there computer and find all of there ancestry.
