Welcome to Pastfinders!
Welcome to the Pastfinders of South Lake County Website.
We are located in the Gem of the Hills, Clermont, Florida. 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; however, during the summer months there are a few scheduled activities and weekly Summer Genealogy Chats at the library. Please see the event calendar on the menu bar for more detail or contact Marlyse at (352) 404-8164 for more information.
