Chaparral Genealogical Society (in Tomball, Texas, near Houston) is having its monthly meeting a week early in November because of Thanksgiving.
Join them November 19 at 10:00 am. The meet in the second floor meeting room of Amegy Bank, 28201 Business 249 in Tomball. Just walk in the bank door, and take the elevator on the left.
This month's speaker is local genealogy celebrity and nationally known author Emily Croom. If the name sounds familiar, it's because she wrote Unpuzzling Your Past, The Genealogist's Companion and Sourcebook, The Sleuth Book for Genealogists, and more (all are affiliate links).
Tomball is having a parade at the same time as the genealogy meeting. The parade route goes through old town and Main Street, so this area will be blocked and crowded. You may need to plan an alternate route.
Sometimes members get together for lunch after the meeting. When they do, everyone is invited.
Chaparral Genealogical Society is a friendly group that welcomes all with an interest in genealogy. If you're in the Houston area and are looking for some genealogy fun this weekend, put this event on your calendar.
