Kathy Huber, MLS, Genealogy Librarian for the Tulsa City-County Library, will present a mini-workshop for the the Tulsa Genealogical Society on Monday, February 23 at the TGS Library, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The mini workshop, “Early Oklahoma Records,” will include land run records, marriage records, Indian Territory records, and Native American records.
I had mentioned in an earlier post that Janice Meredith, FTGS was scheduled to present a mini-workshop on 26 January, but on that date Tulsa was hit by icy weather. That event has been re-scheduled for Monday, 20 May. Her topic is, “Tracing Your Ancestor Using Land Records.”
The suggested donation, for either of these fundraisers for the society, is $7.50. TGS is located just east of 31st and Mingo in Tulsa. For a map to the library, or to read more about the Tulsa Genealogical Society, visit their website.

The Tulsa Genealogical Society will be offering a mini-workshop on Monday, 26 January, at the TGS Library, 9136 Briar Village Shopping Center. Janice Meredith, FTGS, TGS Librarian, will be presenting the topic, which is entitled, “Tracing Your Ancestor Using Land Records.” TGS offers these mini-workshops periodically as fundraiser events, asking for a donation of $7.50 to attend.
Land records of our ancestors can be the solution to difficult genealogical puzzles and they provide insight into the lives of our ancestors. The records are very important yet they can be confusing. Janice is an excellent speaker and I encourage you to attend if you get the chance.
I have been asked to present a mini-workshop for TGS on Monday, 27 April, on one of the topics I will be presenting at the FGS Conference in September — “How To Be a Power Hitter: Improve Your Online Searching Skills.” I’ll write more about that soon. Both workshops will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. To watch for other mini-workshops, or for a map to the TGS Library, visit the Tulsa Genealogical Society’s web site.
