TransylvanCoGenList the Transylvania Genealogy Group is excited to announce the formal kick-off of the new heritage book for Transylvania County. A new history of the county is long overdue!
In the ten years that have passed since the first book was published in 1995, a mountain of quality research has greatly expanded knowledge of our families and the general history of the county. While the first book was quite good, today we have the ability to create a fabulous work of family and general county history that greatly eclipses the successes of volume I -- expanding and even correcting data in the first volume.
The Transylvania Genealogy Group is delighted for the opportunity to lead in creating this new county history and actively seeks the involvement, participation, and support of the entire community, including descendants of Transylvania County families spread across the nation today. Everyone is strongly encouraged to participate!
On Monday, October 16 the community-wide heritage book informational meetings begin in downtown Brevard at the Chamber of Commerce building at 35 West Main Street. Our publisher, Don Mills of County Heritage Inc./Walsworth Publishing, will conduct the meetings.
For convenience, we'll hold the first meeting at 1:00 p.m. and the second at 6:00 p.m., allowing everyone to get in on the meetings that are sure to be well attended. The meetings will provide everything needed to get started compiling and writing articles. Printed materials will be given out. All individuals, families, churches, schools, organizations, institutions, and even businesses in the county are invited to attend to learn how to participate.
The Transylvania Genealogy Group has just opened the heritage book website where you can download a PDF version of the book project brochure that includes everything you need to get started, including sample articles, an order form to buy a book, and a submission form to turn in your article(s).
