Below are the  current Genealogy Programs that the Huntsville Public Library offers:

 Stories to tell my Grandchildren

Stories to Tell My Grandchildren

The Walker County Genealogy Society is hosting a writing group on the third Wednesday of each month at the Huntsville Public Library. The purpose of the group is to document family stories before they are forgotten. The group will meet from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Johnnie Jo Dickenson Sowell Genealogy Room and will use the time to write, discuss, and/or help each other. The group is free and open to everyone, not just genealogists.  Everyone has a story and knowing family stories helps emotional well-being for all ages.  Be a part of the group and provide your grandchildren with a past of family stories that they may take into the future. For more information, contact Adult Services Coordinator Mary Kokot at 936-291-5471.
