Celebrating Family History Month
October 19, 2019
St. Tammany Public Library

Causeway Branch
3457 U.S. Highway 190 in Mandeville, LA


The St. Tammany Genealogical Society and the St. Tammany Parish Library are celebrating Family History Month with a special all-day program on genealogy.  The program will be divided into two parts:


  • A genealogical presentation in the morning from 10 a.m. to noon.  Seating is limited to adults and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • One-on-one sessions with experienced genealogical researchers, by advanced appointment only, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.


Each of these programs is free and open to the public.  A Meet-and-Greet session will precede the morning presentation and will begin at 9:30 a.m.  The public is invited.  Light refreshments will be served.


MINING THE U.S. CENSUS AND FINDING THE GENEALOGICAL GEMS
With Marguerite Scully


The population census, taken every 10 years in the United States, offers a wealth of information to genealogists and family historians. The 1790 to 1940 U.S. census records are now available to the public online, on microfilm and, in some cases, transcribed into book form.  Marguerite Scully examines U.S. population schedules through the decades, focusing on how to mine the gems and look beyond the obvious in order to identify the next generation, take a brick out of that brick wall, or put the family in historical context.

Marguerite Scully is a professional genealogical researcher and lecturer.  She is president of the St. Tammany Genealogical Society and vice president of the Board of the Louisiana Genealogical and Historical Society.     


“Ask the Experts”

Four "seasoned" genealogists will be on hand to get you started with your family history research or to help you solve a puzzle.  Research sessions will be 30 minutes long and will be limited to searching U.S. records.  There will only be 20 slots/sessions available, so be sure to register early!
