JCGS October Meeting

The Johnson County Genealogical Society will meet Thursday, October 9, 2014, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. at the Cleburne Public Library, 302 W. Henderson. Our program will be presented by Melvin Burt.

Melvin 'Sonny' Burt graduated from Cleburne High School in 1958 -- he immediately followed his great grandfather, grandfather, father, older brother and two uncles to a railroad career with the Santa Fe. Melvin has worked tirelessly to bring a railroad museum to Cleburne for over 20 years. He has served on the citizen's railroad museum advisory board for the City of Cleburne since the group’s conception.

Over the years, Melvin has researched his family genealogy extensively and is happy to share his findings with interested parties. He is an active member of the Terry's Texas Rangers Camp #1937-- an organization striving to honor and preserve the memory and true history of our Confederate ancestors.
