Florida Genealogical Society (Tampa)

Serving the Needs of the Genealogical Community for Over 50 Years

Saturday, May 2 Meeting

Join us on Saturday, 2 May 2015, from 10:15 AM to 12:15 PM for an innovative new program for our May Meeting. It is called "May Day! May Day! I Need Help!" and will be held in the Genealogy and History Library on 2-West in the John F. Germany Library at 900 N. Ashley Drive in downtown Tampa. (It will not be in the Auditorium.)
"May Day! May Day! I Need Help!" is an interactive program with 10 discussion stations set up for our members to get help in various areas of their genealogy research. These include: British, German, Irish, Other European Areas, New York and the Northeast, Southern, MIdwest, Florida, Technology, and DNA. Ask questions of others whose research is being done in the same area, share your experience and ideas with others, and become more effective by participating in  this "crowd-sourcing" event. Spend the entire time at one station table or or move from one to another. 
We look forward to seeing you there for this exciting new program!

Here's a brief clip from News Channel 8 coverage on January 8 (although just to be clear, the HCCF program is a program of the Florida Genealogical Society, not of the library system).

We Recognize Our Volunteers

The Florida Genealogical Society, Inc., of Tampa truly appreciates its volunteers, and we recently honored some of them with awards. The photos below were taken at our February 2015 meeting during which our president, Drew Smith, and Awards Committee Chair, Susan Jones, presented the awards.
