Welcome to Pastfinders!
Welcome to the Pastfinders of South Lake County Website.
We are located in Clermont, Florida (From Gem of the Hills to Choice of Champions). The Cooper Memorial Library's Genealogy Room is our base of operation with monthly meetings, genealogy help sessions, computer users’ classes, Beginner Classes, and special events.
Pastfinders mission is to educate the public on the art and science of preserving family history. Learning about your roots, where you came from, and the struggles your family made to get you where you are today can open one’s eyes to what kind of pioneers our ancestors were.
All the classes Pastfinders of South Lake County Genealogical Society conducts are open to the public and most are free to attend. Our meetings are held from September to May. During the summer months the only scheduled activity is a weekly Summer Genealogy Chat at the library. Please see the event calendar on the menu bar for more detail or use the Contact Us page to Email us for more information.
The Lake County Library System (all 16 libraries) will remain CLOSED until further notice to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Updated on March 31st.
Since the Cooper Memorial Library is closed until further notice, this event is also on hold until further notice.
