Members, friends, and guests will share favorite genealogy finds at the January 8, 2013, meeting of the La Porte County Genealogical Society. It's show and tell: bring anything from a question to a quilt!

welcome at all meetings. Membership dues are $10 individual, $12
family -- and they are now due for 2013 as well!
