others have paid.)
You have until JANUARY 31, 1999 to pay if you are a "charter member". But
everyone "needs" to pay no later than Feb 15 so we can get the mailing list

Well I'm back from "playing in the snow" in Salt Lake! Had a wonderful
time and found some exciting stuff but was glad to get home!!! I'm
pooped! And yes, it did snow ..... had about 2 inches downtown .... just
enough to knock out the power in the Family History Library and knock us
out of a whole day of research (almost, got in at 5 that afternoon)!!!

People expect to see what they are looking for on the first page they
get to without looking further... follow the links for the Orleans
Public Library and the State site ... both have a genealogy link telling
you what records are available and from what years... and where they are

Just wanted to let everyone know that Sue Badeaux talked at the "Friends of
Genealogy" today at the Shreve Memorial Library on Documentation and did an
excellent job. Everybody really enjoyed it. There were about 35 people at
Jo Branch and I rode up with her and had a wonderful time doing research in
the genealogy room. The Shreve Memorial Library is open from 9 am to 9 pm
most week days and from 9 am to 5/6? pm on Saturdays and from 1pm to 5 pm on
Sundays. They have tons of books and an ever increasing collections of
The target date for the NEW out-of-down-town genealogy library is due to be
finish by Dec 30, 1999. ALL of the genealogy collection that is currently
housed on the third floor of Shreve Memorial will be moved to this NEW
enlarged branch library. General area of library: From Winnfield, when just
entering Shreveport go North on Hwy 1 to Kings Hwy, go right (east) toward
Bossier and immediately take the right fork of the spilt and it will be down
in that general area. Ground breaking took place in August. We'll keep you
posted. Good thing about the new library, it is nearer to the Shreveport
Family History Center and... on the south side of town!!! (hope it has LOTS
of parking spaces!!!)
