Lineage Society Workshop

The Huntsville Public Library will host its 30 th annual Lineage Society Workshop on Thursday, June 10, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and the public is encouraged to attend. The workshop will be held in the Staggs Community Room and participants will receive assistance in preparation of lineage applications to any patriotic or lineage society (women and men). Attendees will have an hour for independent lunch from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. 

“Anyone interested in joining a lineage society is invited to participate,” said Mary Kokot, Adult Services Coordinator. “Bring any genealogical & family materials you have, i.e. birth, death, and marriage certificates, Bible records, land records, etc. If in doubt, bring it along.  Help will be available to assist in preparing your lineage papers, and worksheets and handouts will be furnished.” 

The workshop is taught by Johnnie Jo Sowell Dickenson, Professional Genealogist, and is sponsored by the Mary Martin Elmore Scott Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Huntsville Public Library. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required.  To attend the workshop and receive the handouts and worksheets, interested parties can register here.
