Celebrating Family History Month
October 13, 2018

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.

  • 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

Is My Husband Really Related to George Washington?
with Marguerite Scully


While researching her husband's ancestry, genealogist Marguerite Scully discovered family trees which were published on Ancestry.com and other genealogical websites that linked his St. Tammany grandmother to the family of George Washington.  Intrigued, and with no family lore to substantiate this claim, Ms. Scully went through the long, and at times arduous, process of attempting to prove or disprove this published lineage of her husband's St. Tammany family.

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.     

Seating is limited to adults and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.


“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!

Here's how to register. 
Email Beth Stahr at bethstahr@gmail.com.  Tell her you are interested in attending the event and she will assign the next available slot to you.  She will then let you know via return email what time your session is scheduled.  Be sure to bring any information or documents that will help with your search.  Bring a flash drive as well in case a significant online document is discovered.

 REMEMBER!   YOU MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE “ASK THE EXPERTS” PROGRAM.
