Welcome Members and Guests!

Ahoy, Members!

Welcome, Spring has sprung for many of us and we are all excited about the possibilities of getting out and about. Although the Pandemic is not over the restrictions have eased up and many of us are back to meetings and events in social distanced venues. Our Society continues to offer virtual programs thru the end of our fiscal year June 2021.

We have enjoyed seeing many of you virtually at our Zoom programs and hope that you enjoyed attending them. The attendance has been comparable to our in person meetings which is wonderful. Moving forward we hope to be back in person by the start of 2021-2022 year which start the second tuesday in September. Stay tuned for upcoming events announcements. We are looking forward to being able to give you some programs by local historians and researchers again.

Our IT Coordinator Kassidy Cobb will continue to reach out to all of you via email at the beginning of each month to update you on new Website material. We will also be sending out an email for members to renew their dues May 1st. We encourage you to continue to support our Society so that we can continue providing you informative programs. Please feel free to reach out to TSGS.president@gmail.com with any program ideas and interest you may have. We will do our best to find a program to accommadate.

Remember we are still accepting articles and indexes to add to the website just as we did for the Packet. You can find all 44 years of “The Packet” periodical on the tsgspaddlewheel.com “Members only” section. Access requires a password that you recieve when you become a member. The password changes June 30th of each year.

Thank you to everyone that are participating in submitting articles, indexes, and original documents. There is no longer a deadline for submission because we are not on a quarterly timeline. So continue checking in often for the newest uploaded information and data. We hope that you will find it easy to navigate as we reorganize and upload.

Our partnership in programming with Willard Library continues but since we are not currently having in person programs you can find our recorded programs on our TSGS YouTube Channel many of our programs are already on there. Also Visit us on Facebook If you enjoyed the programs from St Louis Genealogical Library you can find them on their You Tube channel by searching for them in on the website.

If you have any questions for us please email president.tsgs@gmail.com or call Willard Library’s Special Collections Department at 812-425-4309. This will be the process until COVID-19 restrictions are resolved.

As always, we thank you for attending and supporting the Tri-State Genealogical Society. I look forward to serving the TSGS again for 2021-2022.
