The Northeast Missouri Genealogical Society will hold their first meeting of the year on Saturday, April 28 at 10:00 a.m., at the Shelby County Historical Society museum, located at 107 Center Street in Shelbina.

Sharon Harrison, president of the Northeast Missouri Genealogical Society, will conduct the business meeting.

After the business meeting, Kathleen Wilham, president of the Shelby County Historical Society will tell of exciting news of the ongoing conversion of the building next door to the museum into a genealogical research center and library.  She will tell about the two-story museum running out of space and how a golden opportunity came available for the purchase of the single-story property at 109 Center.

The Northeast Missouri Genealogical Society serves 14 counties in northeast Missouri and the quarterly meetings are scheduled at various locations to make it possible for the outlying members to attend.  The Society is dedicated to the collection of genealogy materials, both published and unpublished, for printing in the “Northeast Reporter”.  The 33 page quarterly is published each April, June, August and October.

The public and those interested in family research are welcome to attend. For information call (573) 221-7282.
