A good time was had by all at the ICGS Annual Picnic, August 12, 2021. The heat and humidity brought attendees inside the Sam Corey Senior Center.
The addition of a database of names from various newspaper clippings, and other genealogical sources is one step closer to implementation. The page was scheduled to go live the Monday after our former software provider declared that EasyNetSites was no longer able to provide service to our webpage. The new owner of the EasynetSites software has been working tirelessly to understand the programming and making the final tweaks so - hopefully - we will be live by the end of this month! The first thing to go into that database will be the names and information from the 3x5 card files maintained in the ICGS Resource Room/Library. Names from newspaper clippings re: weddings, engagements, births, etc. will eventually be added. This is where scrapbook clippings' information will also be added - indexed by name and subject.
