The Trimble County Historical Society welcomes you to attend there meetings. There are the 3rd Saturday of the month, at 1:30 PM, during the months of April through November. In December a meeting has been planned for the second Saturday, because of the holidays coming up. There will be no meeting in January, February or March.

You may also join the society at any time. The dues are still $5.00 a year and all students may join free. We would like to interest some young people in the history of our community. All visitors are welcome to attend any of the meetings.

The newspaper ROUND ABOUT MADISON which is free has been of great interest. It is published by Don Ward. Pick up a copy at the Library.

The APPLE FESTIVAL was a success again this year with several volunteers who helped Violet, our President, with this undertaking. Several books were sold and many showed interest in the Society.

The October meeting included a outing to the Bethel Cemetery. Several of the members and guests went out to the cemetery.

Virginia Taylor is still working on the Obituary Book, that will include any obituary before 1928. Anyone with any information is ask to contact Virginia. She is hoping to include as many early obits as possible in this book. Check your family Bibles or family record books. Old scrap books are a great place for dates and news of Trimble County people.

Joy Mack is working on transcribing the Court Order Book 1, of Trimble Co. We are looking forward to this new addition. This will be the first time for our Court Orders to go to print.

In the Trimble Co. Library in the Genealogy Room, there is a selection of tapes that were taped sometime ago. You must bring your own type player at this time. There are quite a number of tapes of older citizens and their knowledge. Once again, a reminder that there is a micro-film reader in the Library and many rolls of film. The Birth and Death indexes are on micro-fichs and there is a reader for that as well. Please feel free to add your family genealogy to our family files.
