January Program

Monthly Programs

The JCGS hosts monthly programs, usually  in the Community Room of the Jackson County Library,  every second Thursday,  at 6:30 p.m.  All JCGS events are free and open to the public.  For more information, visit us on Facebook or call 631-2646.

Titled "Genealogy and Public History,"  featured speakers will be Jessie Swigger, a Western Carolina University history professor, and WCU student Kurtis Rogers, who was an intern for the Society during this past fall semester.

The program begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room, with Swigger defining public history and describing WCU’s program, and Rogers discussing the topic from a student’s perspective. In addition to interning at the Genealogy Office, Rogers is among several WCU students who prepared exhibits based on the theme “The Way We Worked” that remain on display in the Library. Rogers is among the students responsible for the Fontana Dam exhibit in one of the Library’s main-floor display cases.

Jackson County Genealogical Society programs are always on the second Thursday of each month, usually in the Library’s Community Room.

For more information, call the Society office at 631-2646 or  find the JCGS on Facebook.
