OBCGS Announces Annual Meeting in November

OBCGS invites all members and guests to the Annual Meeting in their genealogy library located at 128 Bingham Rd., Suite 950, Asheville, NC 28806 on Saturday, November 18, 2017. The society will host a covered dish lunch by providing the meat and drinks – all you have to bring is your favorite side dish or dessert! The meeting will take place from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm and the program will start around 1;00 pm.

The meeting will include the state of the Society, book awards and plans for 2018. We will also have maps and books on sale during the meeting. We’re gearing up for a Black Friday book sale on EBay but attendees at the Annual Meeting could have first dibs on some of the offerings!

Take this opportunity to meet with old friends and take advantage of our early bird maps and book sale!
