PRINCETON — The Bureau County Genealogy Society has changed the typical fourth Thursday monthly meeting due to Holy Week activities in the community. For this month only, the meeting will be at 7 p.m. today, Thursday, despite an error in time published in the recent Society newsletter.

The program will be Mick Henneberry of Princeton, an attorney and skilled story teller. He has been a popular presenter in the past at BCGS. This program will consist of tales, humor and “cowboy poetry.” Recording and sharing family stories can be a valuable part of genealogy. The public is cordially invited to attend this free program.

BCGS is still working with a Danish filming company that is preparing a script for a television show in their country which has Sheffield connections. Four members of the Danish team are expected to arrive in the county in early April to film for that program.

Further information may be acquired by calling 815-879-3133 or stopping by from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or the first Saturday of each month.
