These objectives are accomplished through regular meetings and Society-sponsored workshops, lectures, field trips, socials, and other educational activities. The Society offers many opportunities for the public to attend seminars and classes in genealogy-related subjects. There is something for everyone at Society meetings from the novice to the more experienced genealogist. For more information, contact [email protected] or call 727-271-0770.
