Hello there--and welcome! 
The Genealogical Society of South Brevard (GSSB) is here for you!  We provide materials for family historians,  beginners genealogy courses, frequent Tid Bits in emails, a quarterly Bulletin, and monthly programs for those wanting to improve their research skills. There is also a very active French and Canadian Heritage Society group that meets monthly.   GSSB sponsors many activities for those wanting to know more about their ancestors and the lives they lived.
Our entire genealogy library catalog is online and it is searchable!  What a great resource for you.  Come and check it out. Click here to get started or select + Library from the menu at the left.
The society's genealogy library, meeting room, and classroom are located in the Melbourne Library, 540 E. Fee Avenue, near the downtown area of Melbourne.  Meetings are at 10 am, the second Wednesday of every month (except July-August) in the library Meeting Room (first room on right inside front door).  Come at 9:30 for some snacks, drinks, and meet the wonderful people ( I'm biased! ) in our group.
Please explore our website and do come see us at our next meeting!
