UP-COMING MEETINGS / PROGRAMS

Feb. 20th Meeting: 

The Postcard and Bible collections of the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society will be on display during Monday night’s 6:30 p.m. presentation by President Diane Osborn.  Although based on a large donation received from the Shirley/Goode family of Hartsburg, the program will also feature the Society’s entire collections.  The Shirley/Goode collection includes a book of family tintypes, the 1873 Bible of Henry and Martha Shirley, genealogy folders, and a sizeable postcard collection dating from 1907. 

Other Bibles on display will be the 1872 Bible of F. M. and E. Hayes of Lincoln and the 1857 Bible of David Birk and Sara Copeland,  who were married in Mt. Pulaski.  Other Postcards to be shown are an embossed Hartsburg, IL card, a Greetings from Atlanta, IL card, and the entire Lincoln, IL collection.  Duplicate cards and copies will be available for sale or order.



All meetings are on the 3rd Mondays of each month (except for December) at 6:30 pm, with
the speaker being first on the agenda. We look forward to seeing you.  Please call Carol Farmer,
Vice-President and Program Chairperson, with suggestions for programs at 217-871-3510.
