Since I was not at the July meeting, I cannot report on it.

We have had three inquires about Missing Milam Ancestors:

QUERY: Linda Acord of Irving, TX - Seeking information on Frank & Nettie ROPER of Gause

QUERY: Claudette A. Mason of Lofgate, CA - Seeking information on G. L. GOLDSON & A. A. GOLDSON

QUERY: W. D. Kirkpatrick of Ocean Springs, CA - Seeking information on Edgar B. PHILLIPS & family

The information above came from Marie Hubert. She also asked me to put a note in The Legacy concerning a session sponsored by the Texas State Genealogical Society to be held at the Bellmead Civic Center. She and Cotton are interested in having a group go. Among the topics covered is identifying maiden names of ancestors. Pre-registration is $20. Registration at the door is $25.

We have two new members as a result of handling inquires:
