Wise Words

  • We are the children of many sires, and every drop of blood in us in its turn ... betrays its ancestor.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • He who has no fools, knaves, or beggars in his family was begot by a flash of lightning.
    English Proverb

  • There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings.
    Hodding S. Carter

  • Life is lived forwards, but understood backwards.
    Unknown

  • In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.
    Alex Haley, Roots

  • We've uncovered some embarrassing ancestors in the not-too-distant past. Some horse thieves, and some people killed on Saturday nights. One of my relatives, unfortunately, was even in the newspaper business.
    Jimmy Carter
    Former U.S. President

  • Why waste your money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
    Mark Twain

Events at the Library

Family Tree Maker (FTM) User's Group

The FTM User's Group meets the second Saturday of each month at the NWMGS Library, 412 Felix, St. Joseph, from 10:30 AM - Noon. This group is open to members of the public and users who wish to practice and use the FTM software, learn about all of its features, and share their practical advice with others. You are welcome to join the group at any time, with absolutely no commitment. If you are using another genealogy software and want to compare features before making a purchase, this is a great way to "try before you buy".

April 24th - Judge Ron Taylor

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Judge Ron Taylor will regale us with stories of St. Joseph's legal past - the funny, the pitiful and the downright wonderous workings of some of the most colorful characters that ever trod the hallways of the court house.

This presentation is FREE and open to the public. FREE parking at the municipal lot across the street.

Potluck dinner begins at 6:00 PM and the presentation will begin at 7:00 PM.
