A collection of historical and genalogical records
Pat Douglas will be speaker at the regular monthly meeting of the Polk County Genealogical Society, in Bolivar, Missouri, at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 3. Douglas will share an old family Bible that was returned to his family last December.
The Bible was returned by a gentleman from Georgia. The existence of this Bible, belonging to Sidney Albert and Melinda Graham Douglas, Pat’s great-great-grandparents, was unknown to the family. It contains a wealth of family history with newspaper clippings and obituaries. The Douglas family has begun researching the family hoping to discover even more about the Douglas heritage.
The evening will begin with a short business meeting at 7 p.m. at the society’s research facility on the southeast corner of the square. Anyone interested in hearing about the Bible is more than welcome to attend. The PCGS meetings are always open to the public. One does not have to be a member to attend, or to use the research facility.
