Genealogy group learns history

A group of people interested in the subject of genealogy meets the first Thursday each month.

Although most of the group are interested in finding out more about their own ancestors, they learn something about other historical figures in the process, according to the group's chairman, Nancy Powell.

"We're an informal group that meets and discusses genealogy and we try to get through road blocks by talking together," said Powell.

The group has about 15 members, with no dues, and is open to new members. At Thursday's meeting, Nevada state regent of the Daughters of the American Revolution Dixie Judge spoke to the group.

"She is always very informative," said Powell.

On Feb. 2 at 2:30 p.m. the genealogy group will feature Donna and Floyd Dunn, who will speak about the early Nevada pioneers of Gold Hill, Moundhouse and Carson City.

The group always meets at the Douglas County Public Library in Minden, 1625 Library Lane.

For more information on the group, call Powell at 782-9464.
