Dear Members,

The Texas State Genealogical Society has a virtual conference this coming Friday and Saturday, August 7-8,  with outstanding speakers. And if you cannot attend those dates, access to the recordings & handouts will be available until November 15, 2020 to watch on any device at any time or place. There are 8 speakers (one of these is Ari Wilkins who is an HCGS favorite & spoke to our society last year) with 8 great topics. Here is a link :https://www.txsgs.org/txsgs-2020-virtual-conference/

If you are a Facebook user, you might check out our “Hopkins County Genealogical Society” page where we post information about upcoming events and library announcements. We also have a “Hopkins County Genealogical Society” group which can easily be accessed from that page by clicking the blue button that says “Visit Group”, below the profile photo. There you can post discussions about ancestors or questions. Who knows someone might have a photo of your ancestor or give you a suggestion to try that helps break down a brick wall.

After being temporarily closed last week, we reopened Monday morning, August 3rd.  Our hours will now be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ( We will use the time between the usual 9:00 a.m. opening and 9:30 a.m. to clean and sanitize the computers and other shared surfaces).  The HCGS library will resume Saturday morning hours beginning  September 12th from 9:30 – 12:00. We will be closed on September 5th in observance of the Labor Day holiday weekend.
