HCGS August 2010 Mtg - "Genealogical Societies"

   The August meeting of the Honolulu County Genealogical Society Meeting was held Saturday August 14th, at the Manoa Gardens Community club house.  The topic "Genealogical Societies" offered members the chance to discuss the genealogical societies they belong to, and why they have joined them.  Descriptions of the societies were given and samples of the newsletters and journals were shown.   Examples of how the societies have influenced or aided their family research were given.  Story after story was give to describe the kind and wonderful things members of these societies have done.  Gratitude goes out to these societies - so far from Hawaii - that provide so much to others.  We reolved to joing more genealogy societies!
