Join us for our 25th Anniversary Celebration this October 2015!
D-OGS was started in 1989. Our mission was to establish a genealogical community dedicated to the research and preservation of family history of Durham and Orange Counties. Providing research assistance and educational opportunities to our members and the public through outreach programs, monthly meetings, newsletters, and a journal were also critical elements of our mission and are still being carried out today.
October is Family History Month but it is also D-OGS' 25th Anniversary! For our 25th Anniversary Celebration, we will celebrate the highlights of our Society and its members in some of the following ways:
- Charter members will attend to talk about what it was like to start D-OGS
- Members will talk about how they came to join D-OGS and what their first year was like in the society
- We will highlight D-OGS accomplishments in the genealogical or historical fields
- We will celebrate those members we have lost but loved
- We will show off our scrapbooks and photo albums
- Highlight members’ family from Durham and Orange Counties
- We will have a transportation list for ride-sharing to and from the event
- We will eat food and have a good time
Please call Carol Boggs at (919) 967-3646 to schedule a ride to and from this event.
Hope to see you there!
