Champaign County Genealogical Society Website Features and Member Benefits
Tuesday, October 11
Champaign County Genealogical Society Website Features and Member Benefits  (Monthly Meeting)
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Zoom/Virtual
The Champaign County Genealogical Society has been active since 1969, and even though we’ve gone through many changes over the years, our mission has always been the same
  • to promote genealogical and historical research;
  • to aid in the publication and preservation of genealogical and historical records and manuscripts; and
  • to provide programs designed to assist both the beginning and the advanced genealogist.
For this meeting we will take you through our website in real-time to uncover some of the treasures that members have access to and may not even realize it. We will discuss how the society may be able to benefit your research and get feedback on what members (and potential members) would like to see from the society in the future.  Come join us for this information (and fun) meeting.
 
The presentation will begin at 7:00 pm (CDT)Want some extra time to talk about genealogy?  Log on as early as 6:30pm to socialize and get to know other family historians in our group.

Join other CCGS members as we explore Bryant Cemetery in Mahomet, Illinois. At this casual outing we will view a variety of headstones and inscriptions from the mid-late 19th century. We will be joined by Hal Hassen, author of Cemeteries of Illinois, for this special event. He will point out some great examples of marble, granite, and zinc headstones.
 
Please note: Parking is limited at this cemetery (no parking lot). If the roadside spots are full, we ask that participants park at the Mahomet United Methodist Church at 1302 East South Mahomet Rd.  We can carpool/ shuttle from this location to the cemetery. Carpooling from Champaign/Urbana would also benefit the parking situation. Masks are recommended for carpooling.
 
This event is weather permitting and may be canceled if significant wind or storms occur.  This cemetery is heavily shaded in sections and the ground is uneven throughout. Please wear comfortable shoes and bring any walking aids necessary for ground conditions. There are no sidewalks at this location.
