On February 2, 2016, the Forsyth County Genealogical Society will hold the monthly meeting in the auditorium of the Reynolda Manor Branch Library, located on Fairlawn Drive, in Winston-Salem. The social period begins at 6:30 pm, and the meeting will be called to order at 7:00 pm.

Our speaker this month is Linda Dark,the assistant archivist involved with the SSAH: Society for the Study of Afro American History in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. Founded in the late 1980’s, their mission is to collect and preserve artifacts and information about the black community and culture of Winston Salem, including but not limited to the 1920’s thru the 1950’s. Their goal is to educate the general public about the contributions made by minorities to the general population of the Twin City, and how the challenges/hardships of that era were overcome.

 

Monthly meetings of the FCGS are free and open to the public. Visitors are welcome.

 

The FCGS follows the weather schedule of the WS/FC school system. Should school be canceled or dismissed early due to inclement weather, then our meeting will be canceled, as well.
