Thank you very much for your time and efforts in this search.
The society recently received a $20.00 donation in honor of Gertrude Banks from the Elizabeth Denton Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Ms. Banks was the speaker at the March meeting of that DAR chapter and asked that her speaker fee be donated to our genealogical society.
Thanks both to Ms. Banks and to the Elizabeth Denton Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Sharon Gallatin Phillips, on February 1st, 2010 Said: Dear Members,
I am not as yet a paid member. I have not found family in your area,however, I appreciate your website as I have learned much and the links are helping me also. I am what one might call a newbie. My husband’s family is mostly in Rusk Co., and mine is in Brazos, Madison, and Limestone. To my knowledge they do not have websites near as nice as yours. I do read ETGS also. I am on an extremely set budget, and I appreciate the access to your website.”

7. Email received from Ron Schell: “That’s a great looking Newsletter! I like the layout and generous use of links for further research. I’m looking forward to reading it carefully. Thanks for your work in putting it together.
8. Comment received from Terri O’Connell on Genealogywise: “I love the set up. You have all the information there and it is easy to find. Which I find is the biggest problem with some of the local societies.
The only thing I would look into changing, is nothing related to the site. If it is possible for the society to set up the ability to join the society on line. Sometimes, it is just easier for those of us at home to do it that way. For instance, NEHGS had an add on Facebook and I was able to click through it and join. Keep in mind it was something I had wanted to do, it was just easier for me to do it this way.
Otherwise, I love the crisp feel to it. Great job!
