Louisville Genealogical Society Tours the SAR Genealogical Research Library

 

LGS MembersMembers of the Louisville Genealogical Society (LGS) were in for a treat on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, when they held their semi-monthly meeting at the SAR Genealogical Research Library. The Louisville Genealogical Society is a non-profit organization whose membership promotes genealogy, local history, and the use of local records. It is currently in its 26th year of existence.  Fourteen members of LGS met at the library for a tour of the facility.  Rae Ann Sauer, NSSAR Assistant Librarian/Archivist, led the tour.  Highlights of the tour included the Cornerstones of Freedom statue by James Muir in the lobby, a description of the library‚Äôs collection and layout, the U.S. Compatriot Presidents exhibit, and the Mary and James S. Craik Special Collections Room.
 
After the tour, LGS members were invited to perform independent research in the library. Most of the members stayed well into the afternoon, and a few even expressed interest in becoming Friends of the Library.  This was the first opportunity most had had to visit the new library, and all were impressed with the library building as well as the library collection.  For more information about LGS, please visit the website.
