A group of researchers from Texas, Colorado, and California, will be in Decatur, AL, March 10-16, engaging in research of the SYBERT FAMILY at the courthouse, archives, Morgan County Genealogy Society, local cemeteries, etc.
In addition, we would welcome the opportun-ity to meet and/or talk to those of you living in the area who have similar interests, particularly those having source material of their ancestors, including birth, marriage, and death certificates, family Bibles, letters, military service records and pension applications, shoeboxes of family photos, portraits, etc. In other words -- we would like the opportunity to copy or photograph any objects that would help us show that our ancestors were more than just dates and places, but that they had lives with meaning and purpose and shared their lives with family and friends.
We will be staying at the Comfort Suite in Decatur, 918 Beltline Highway (Hwy. 67), telephone number 256-355-9977. If you would like to talk to us about our common interests, please phone us at this number anytime between March 10-16. If we are not in when you call, leave your name and phone number and we will get back with you. Or, reply to this post giving your name and number and we will contact you when we arrive.
Maybe some of you with SYBERT lineage, who are living outside the immediate area can be of help by referring us to others with similar family interests who are living in the Decatur area, who are known to possess family records and/or memorabilia that would be beneficial to our family history. Or perhaps, you know of someone who does not have a computer and would not see this message, then please reply to this post and give their name and phone number.
We are anticipating great success from this research trip, but it might be made much more successful if we can hear from you.
Thanks in advance for your help.
