SCCGS celebrates its founding in May

Society Birthday Celebration. May marks the beginning of our 42nd year.

We take a look back at the early years as shared by founding members and a video slide show prepared by the Society Historian, Donna Watson.

June 6, 2019 Candy Buechler tells how she discovered her seventh great-grandmother and her life in Marie Rouensa: Portrait of a Kaskaskia Indian. Rouensa was the daughter of Kaskaskia Chief Rouensa and influenced the lives of the Kaskaskia Indians around the turn of the 18th century. She gained respect in a white society and became one of the most notable women in southern Illinois. Buechler includes her resources and background for researching Native American ancestors.
