Grand Prairie Genealogical Society: Celebrating 50 Years as a Society!  (Special Event)
2:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Grand Prairie Memorial Library, 901 Conover Drive, Grand Prairie, TX 75051
The Grand Prairie Genealogical Society was formed in the fall of 1967 by several patrons of the Grand Prairie Memorial Library.  The “DAR Patriot Index” was the first book our organization gave to the library, which placed it in a barrister bookcase, for security!  In addition to the materials provided to the library, the Grand Prairie Genealogical Society has sponsored a number of workshops. Besides all the talented speakers GPGS has benefited from our own members who have shared their time, treasures, personal research materials and stories. The annual “Antless” Picnic held every July and the Christmas Potluck Celebration are always fun and a hit with the members.
