This month’s meeting of the Siuslaw Genealogical Society features the 30 minute film ‘Interviewing Kin and Mining Home Sources’. This is one of a new DVD series now available in the library.
Following the video, there will be a discussion of upcoming programs for SGS, and a sneak peek at an idea for a series of programs for next year.

Siuslaw Public Library, Bromley Room
The public is invited!
The Siuslaw Genealogy Society’s monthly business meeting will follow the discussion.
It is with great sadness we report the recent passing of SGS member Joyce Harris. She passed away suddenly last month in Benson, Arizona. According to member Pat Ness, “Joyce was very enthusiastic about genealogy and her family history research”.
DEADWOOD CEMETERY PROJECT
SGS Treasurer Pat Rongey who is involved with the Deadwood Cemetery revitalization project, reports the group received a grant from Western Lane Community Foundation for software and computer equipment. The group has mapped the graves, continues to do grounds improvements and will begin replacing missing and temporary grave markers. They invite the public to a Memorial Day – Heritage Day event with ‘Pioneer’ actors, historic displays and demonstrations.
