October is Family History Month. This morning the North Platte Genealogical Society attended a proclamation signing by the Mayor. It is a month to enjoy family and also understand and learn about family backgrounds, culture and heritage. The family is the building block for the community.
The society will have a month-long display at the library where the genealogy collection of books and microfilm is housed. We hope to have people there frequently throughout the month to assist others. In addition, we are encouraging people of all ages, young and old, to explore their family history.
We are all here because of our family and the families before them. It is our hope that the people who will spark an interest in genealogy this month, will continue their research for years to come.
