Family History Month 2014

We have a small display in the Fort Dodge Public Library. We decided to feature ancestors who served in World War I. Many Webster County residents, both men and women, either served in the military or aided the war effort at home.

October meeting

We will meet at 1 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 6, in our room at the Fort Dodge Public Library. We will set the officers for the coming year, and finish working on our display for Family History Month. The display should be installed in the library next week.

September meeting

Our September meeting will be held at 1 p.m. on September 8, due to the Labor Day holiday. We will present potential names for officers for 2014-2015. Voting for officers will be held in the monthly meeting on October 6.

We will also ask for updates on projects for the Family History Month display in October. If you have volunteered to have something for this, let us know how you are progressing.

August meeting

We meet at 1 p.m. on the first Monday of every month except when that Monday is a holiday. So our next meeting is Aug. 4. The September meeting will be on Sept. 8.

Our meetings are held in our room (Room 134) of the Fort Dodge Public Library, 424 Central Ave. The public is welcome.
