Everyone is invited to attend the monthly meeting of the Red River County Genealogical Society, to be held on Monday (Jul 8) at 7:00 pm at the Red River County Chamber of Commerce Meeting room. The speaker is Debra Cornett Usry, District D, Texas State Genealogical Society representative.
She will bring a program called “What does your Texas State Genealogical Society have to offer Partner Societies and Individual Genealogists?” She will also share a list of free websites that will help with researching ancestors. All interested persons are encouraged to attend.
Debra was born in Paris and adopted by Leighton and Ruth Moore Cornett. Mr. Cornett was raised in Red River County. She started researching her birth families in 1979 when the research was done by walking cemeteries, browsing research books in genealogical libraries, looking through newspaper archives, and courthouse record books. She found her families and later also researched her husband’s family, that enabled him to become a Choctaw Tribal Member.
