Sunday, May 21, 2017 - Rhode Island Genealogical Society Annual Meeting - North Kingstown

12:30 - 3:30 PM at North Kingstown United Methodist Church, 450 Boston Neck Road, Rte. 1A, North Kingstown

The Annual Meeting of the Rhode Island Genealogical Society will be held on Sunday, May 21 at 12:30 pm. The meeting will take place at the North Kingstown United Methodist Church, 450 Boston Neck Road, and will begin with light refreshments, followed by a brief business meeting, awards ceremony, and the election of officers.

Our meeting is hosting the following guest speaker—William B. Saxbe, Jr., a Certified Genealogist since 1981, is a graduate of Amherst College, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard School of Public Health. He was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists in 1997 and currently serves as its president.

His writings on the Bowen family include not only Volumes 1 - 3, but the delightful “Twenty- One Jabez Bowens,” in Rhode Island Roots. Dr. Saxbe’s book Johann Genning (1818-1898) and His Descendants: A Toledo Family won the 1991 NGS Award for Excellence in Genealogy and Family History. He comes by his interest in the Bowen family naturally, as both his
parents descend from Richard1 Bowen.

Refreshments will be served as always. If anyone would like to bring something for the refreshment table, it would be very much appreciated. Please, come join us and bring along a non-member friend.
