Welcome to all. The purpose of this blog is to share information regarding our society, provide timely updates, and mentor each other in our endeavor to research our family histories. Our primary audience is our membership but anyone with genealogical interest is invited to participate.
Chester A. Bowser Scholarship recipient, Madonna Davis Marks, attended the EGS evening meeting on August 16, 2012. Madonna told the attendees about some of her journey researching her own family history and of her goal to contribute to the community after completing her studies in Library Sciences through the University of Illinois Graduate School.
EGS President, Judy VanDusen and Scholarship Chair, Lee Ellsworth, were pleased to award Madonna with a check to further her education.
