Brownwood - May 10, 2016 - by Danny Jones - The Pecan Valley Genealogical Society held it's monthly meeting last night in the Carnegie Room at the Brownwood Public Library, hosted by group two. The President yours truly called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. After the prayer and pledges, I introduced Mr. Fred Allen , of PVGS group two, who gave a lead in story about finding genealogical information in the Brown county District Clerk's office. Mr. Allen then introduced the honorable Mrs. Cheryl Jones, our District Clerk, as program speaker. Mrs. Jones gave a very informative talk about herself and her office. She is very aware of the value of the records and especially the old ones. At her direction, the office staff is working as much as they can to digitize all of the old records. There were 13 members and 3 guest attending. Our business meeting tended to the regular business. Afterward we were treated to refreshments by Mrs. Irene Glaspie. The door prize, administered by myself and Mrs. Cheryl Jones, was an adapter for USB to SD cards.
