Sept. 5. - Oct. 17, 2018
The GSSB Fall 2018 Basic Genealogy Course series is scheduled to begin September 5 through October 17, 2018; 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, on consecutive Wednesday evenings at the Melbourne Public Library.  To register for class, call 321-953-8373 or email with your name and phone number. There is a $35 cost which can be paid at the first class for the basic series curriculum. 
The basic course provides attendees a well rounded introduction into various aspects of genealogy, how to do your research, and offers a look at many of the resources available to researchers. If you have a casual interest in genealogy or are unsure how to get started with your family history, this is the course for you!
Current members may take the course for $10, covering cost of materials. Cost includes all sessions, class materials, as well as membership in the Genealogical Society of South Brevard until the end of the following year for Fall attendees. (if already a member of the GSSB and pay the full September cost, the fee will cover your annual renewal). 

Melbourne Public Library; 540 E. Fee Ave. (9:30am - 11:45am)
On September 12, 2018, the Genealogical Society of South Brevard is sponsoring the program titled “Tour of Online European Archives” at our monthly meeting. As always, it is open to the public.
The program will be presented by Miles Meyer, the director of the Family History Center in Vero Beach. Europe is leading the way by putting many of their archives online. These archives provide an important resource for those researching their European ancestry.
This GSSB program will discuss how to find various regional and national archives and the steps needed to find those records that are most important to your research. The focus will be on central European archives; France, Germany, etc. and the larger archives such as the Europeana website.
The French & Canadian Heritage Society is sponsoring "What To Include In Your Obituary" on September 17, 2018 at the monthly meeting of the FCHS. The program will include a discussion about how you might want your own obituary to read. Think about your autobiography and life story.  What would you include?  What might you exclude?  What would you like future generations to know about you?
