November meeting -- Dr. Sylvanus Everts

Dr. Barbara Backer will offer glimpses into local history, medical history, and family history in the story of Dr. Sylvanus Everts when the La Porte County Genealogical Society meets on Tuesday, November 8.

The society's business meeting will begin at 7:15 pm, followed by the program -- all at the
Swanson Center for Older Adults, 910 State Street, La Porte. The society meets there on the second Tuesday of each month, weather permitting. The public is welcome at all meetings.

It's not too early to apply for one or more residency certificates for 2012. Our web site at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~inlcigs/ has information for those who believe they have La Porte County ancestors (and can prove it!). There's information on how to apply for First Families of La Porte (before December 1840), Pioneer Families (1841-1860), Settler Families (1861-1880), and Civil War Families (1861-1865).

You can also read or search back issues of the society's newsletter, December 2005 through December 2009, including genealogical and historical information from members' research and abstracting work in local records, on
our blog at http://lpcgs.blogspot.com.
