Capital District Genealogical Society Meeting & Anniversary

On 22 October 2016, the Capital District Genealogical Society will hold its monthly meeting at the William K. Sanford, Town of Colonie Library at 629 Albany-Shaker Road, Loudonville. This month's program is titled Getting Past Research Roadblocks and will be presented by Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer.

Program snipit: What genealogist doesn’t have research roadblocks? Breaking through them requires studying the ancestor and his associates as thoroughly as possible to construct a detailed timeline of his life and find clues for further research that may yield a solution.

The CDGS meetings are held on the 4th Saturday of month, except 3rd Saturday of month in May; and no meeting in December.
All regular meetings 1:00PM.
Interest groups meet 12 to 1PM.
Computer Resources Group meets 2:30PM.

After this month's program, a celebration of our 35th year as the Capital District Genealogical Society will be held. I have been a member of the CDGS on and off for years and may have been present at one of the very first CDGS meetings. I recall attending a CDGS meeting in a small lecture room within the New York State Library many many years ago. I remember Peter and Florence Christoph giving a talk during that meeting.
