JCGS April Meeting



The Johnson County Genealogical Society will meet Thursday, April 10, 2014, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. at the Cleburne Public Library, 302 W. Henderson. Our program will be “Who’s Your Mama? Tracing Your Female Ancestors,” presented by Terri Meeks. The public is invited to attend.

Terri Meeks retired from BAE Systems in 2007 as a test engineer for F-16 support equipment. A co-worker introduced her to the world of genealogy in 2000. She soon discovered that her grandparents were immigrants so the traditional U. S. census searches produced few results. Tracing her maternal line to Quebec introduced her to new materials and resources for genealogy research. She is currently serving as Vice President of the Fort Worth Genealogical Society and teaches their Beginners' Genealogy Class. She is a community volunteer at the local Family History Center and translates Catholic Church records from French, Latin and Italian into English for the American Canadian Genealogical Society. Her husband, Dan, is also an avid genealogist and techno-geek.
