Sponsor a Research Room

For an $2100.00 donation, the donor is entitled to have one of the rooms named
for their ancestor or loved one for a period of one year. The Scott County Genealogical Society will have a commemorative plaque hung in a room and will display a picture of the individual being honored. The first room was named the Mamie Cole Mace Research Room, the second room was sponsored in memory of Beverly Lou Hutton by her sister and brother-in-law. The room has been sponsored to honor a living friend: in 2005, Thelma Gilbert Hogue and in 2006 and 2007, Naomi Keith Sexton. The rooms are available for sponsorship. Check with your cousins. If you share an ancestor, perhaps they will share the donation to sponsor a room. Sponsorship is available anytime.
