Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from the

St. Tammany Genealogical Society!

You Are Cordially Invited
to our 2018
Holiday Luncheon

Dear STGS Community,

Please join us for the annual STGS Christmas Luncheon. We are celebrating a successful year of programming and good company, and we are looking forward to an even more productive and informative 2019!

Our program for this event is entitled
Using the Records in the New Orleans Archdiocese Archives.

Church records are vital sources of genealogical information, especially for the time periods preceding the existence of civil vital records.  The speaker Mr. Jack Belsom will describe the types and content of records held at the New Orleans Archdiocese Archives and the time periods covered.  Additionally, he will advise attendees on how to access and use these records for genealogical research.  

Mr. Belsom has served as the staff genealogist for the Archdiocese of New Orleans Archives for over eighteen years.  He has also served as a board member and president of the Genealogical Research Society of New Orleans.  At present Mr. Belsom is the Archivist for the New Orleans Opera Association, a position he has held since 1974.  He is currently preparing a manuscript about the 75-year history of this organization.  Mr. Belsom has a B.A. in history from Tulane University and a M.A. in history from Louisiana State University.
