Dear STGS Members and Friends,

As I am sure you all know, we are living in interesting times. In keeping with the directives of public health officials and local restrictions, our March 28, 2020 program has been postponed. We will let you know dates and times and topics when we are able to resume normal programming.

Also, please note that all St. Tammany Parish Library Branches are closed this week - until March 21. However, this may change. Check the website for updates.  

In addition, the Louisiana Genealogical and Historical Society's Annual Spring Conference scheduled for April 4 in Baton Rouge has been postponed.
