WELCOME!
 
Welcome to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Genealogical Society where our mission is Preserving the Past for Future Generations. The LLCGS was founded by 4 friends in 1975 over donuts and coffee. We are a volunteer-run organization dedicated to promoting genealogy, engaging members, and preserving records. Whether you have Lancaster County connections or not, we invite you to join us in exploring your family history.

Picture Perfect: Preserving Your Family Photographs
 
Karen Keehr will talk about what is causing damage to your photographs, how to preserve them, tips on labeling photographs, how to identify different types of prints and negatives, and a few helpful pointers on how to guess the age of a photograph. We encourage everyone to bring one historic photograph to share.
 
Before each monthly meeting, beginning at 6 pm, we hold a 45-minute Help Session. Please come with genealogy problems that you would like to have us take a look at. And come ready to offer other peoples’ research a fresh look. Bring your laptops or other genealogical devices so we can investigate resources that you may not have used. Prudence Sadler will facilitate this session.
