The Madison County Historical Society has announced fall dates for coming Family History Saturdays.
The next session will be held between 1 and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 5 at the Madison County Archival Library where individual genealogy assistance will be provided for patrons interested in researching their Madison County family trees. Additional dates, with the same hours, have been scheduled for Oct. 3 and Nov. 7.
Among the resources available are books, photos, family histories, city directories, cemetery inventories, maps, newspaper clippings, and much more. While the MCHS collection focuses on Madison County, it also has information from many of the surrounding counties.
Whether just starting out, or in the process of expanding a family tree, area residents are encouraged to stop by to work on their family tree or explore resources at the MCHS Library or Museum. For additional information, call (618) 656-7569.
Regular hours for the Madison County Archival Library and Historical Museum, located at 715 N. Main St. in Edwardsville, are Wednesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.
