Chaparral GenSoc Meeting
It was all Amy Coffin's fault. A year ago she mentioned she'd found this awesome society called Chaparral Genealogical Society over in Tomball, Texas.
Now, I had heard of it, but thought to myself, "Geez. Tomball? That's, like, 30 minutes from where I live. But if Amy's willing to drive 60 minutes, it's gotta be good."
And it was.
And it is.
As of our last meeting we're 97 strong and growing. We've got exciting plans that I cannot *wait* to share with you when I'm able.
And? That's where I met the fantastic DAR members, and how I got started in proving my lineage for membership.
But getting back to the society, it's great to know I can go talk genealogy, family history, and history with like-minded folks who treat you just like family.
And this past Saturday was our once-a-month meeting and I thought I'd show you what our meetings look like and what we did.
And show you what I like to do on my way home from said meetings every month because as luck would have it, the road that takes me there and brings me back is the same road that runs in front of one of my favorite places...
All I can say is I'm lucky that Amy shared Chaparral with me. I'm lucky to be a part of such a great group. And? If you live nearby, I encourage you to come check us out.
If you don't, then I encourage you to find a local GenSoc near you. Maybe you'll get lucky too.
