Does your family have legends and stories? Ever wonder whether you can believe them or not? Come join us at the June Cobb County Genealogical Society (CCGS) meeting and hear long-time columnist, Kenneth H. Thomas, Jr share on “Family Legends and Stories: What to Believe?”
Thomas, a native of Columbus, Georgia has been a columnist for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution since 1977. In 2018 he received the National Genealogy Society’s President’s Citation in recognition of his outstanding, continuing contributions to the field of genealogy. A graduate of Emory University, he is a noted genealogist and historian, authored and co-authored several books. Ken’s interest in genealogy started during his year’s in High School and it was his work on the genealogy of former Governor and President Jimmy Carter that opened the door to his column at the AJC. Ken retired from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in Atlanta, working with the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
The society meets the fourth Tuesday of each month in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church of Marietta, 189 Church Street, Marietta, GA 30060 at 7 P.M. Our next meeting is 25 June 2019 and we hope to see you there. For more information please see our website at https://cobbgensoc.org.
