Interesting, informative and well attended is how I would describe last month’s meeting. Jim Johnson from the Heritage Quest Research Library did a great job of teaching us about the unique Melungeon people. If you were unable to attend, you missed out on a great resource. As far as I know, I am not descended from these folks but I am still very glad I was able to attend and learn more about them. Stay tuned for upcoming meeting notices and don’t miss out on future educational and informative topics that our society provides.
