Please join us June 4, 2009 for An Introduction to the National Archives and Its Treasures. Visit the National Archives during this virtual tour. We will clear some pathways through the amazing wealth of records at this Pennsylvania Avenue institution, learn some "lingo, " and view documents that may apply to your own family's research.

Our speaker, Diane Walsh, CG(SM), has visited the Archives in Washington, D.C. on several occasions, each time taking away new insights into the massive and varied records stored there. She is the author of St. Clair County, Illinois Research and Resources: A Genealogist's Guide and editor of our society’s quarterly journal.

Our monthly meetings begin at 7:30 pm at St. Luke's Parish Hall, 226 N. Church St., Belleville, Illinois 62220.

We are always looking for good speakers on genealogical topics. Let us know if you can recommend any speaker(s) from the St. Louis Metro Area, or if you can speak on a topic of interest to our Society.

For more information, program suggestions or inclement weather, please contact Karen LaCroix, Program Chairperson at or (618) 286-4392.

Guests of Members and First-time Visitors are Always Welcome!
