The first program for 2020 of the Southern Ohio Genealogical Society (SOGS) will be held Thursday, March 12 at 7 p.m. at the North High Business Center at 1487 N. High St. in Hillsboro. The group will meet in the conference room.
Chad McConnaughey, Highland County recorder, will present “Deeds Help Build Trees” in a PowerPoint presentation that will demonstrate how the records at the recorder’s office can assist researchers while attempting to find family ties. Records of deeds help locate properties and family connections, thus providing information that is found only in these types of documents. Handouts will be provided.
McConnaughey is a graduate of Lynchburg-Clay High School and holds a degree in computer assisted design from Southern State. He was employed by McCarty Associates in the surveying department for 18 years and was elected to the recorder’s position in 2013. He is a member of the Ohio Recorder’s Association and the Highland County Records Retention Committee.
All SOGS meetings are open to the public and free of charge. Visit the website at www.sogs.info and like it on Facebook.
