The Madison County Historical Society has announced the dates for Family History Saturdays.
The July session will be 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 11, at the Madison County Archival Library, where individual genealogy assistance will be provided for patrons interested in researching their Madison County family trees. Additional dates, with the same hours, have been scheduled for Aug. 1 and Sept. 5.
Resources include books, photos, family histories, city directories, cemetery inventories, maps, newspaper clippings and more. While the MCHS collection focuses on Madison County, it also has information from surrounding counties.
Whether just starting out, or in the process of expanding a family tree, residents are encouraged to stop by to work on their family tree or explore resources at the MCHS Library or Museum. For information, call (618) 656-7569.
Regular hours for the Madison County Archival Library and Historical Museum are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday to Friday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The library and museum are at 715 N. Main St. in Edwardsville.
