Decorah Genealogy Society presentation on Huguenot ancestors set for October 24

A break-away Protestant group that originated in France will be the topic of a talk sponsored by the Decorah Genealogy Society at 7 p.m. Monday, October 24 at the Decorah Senior Center, 806 River Street. Decorah Genealogy Society Vice President Mike Coffey will speak about his Huguenot ancestors, who came to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 1600s from the Channel Islands, off the coast of Normandy.

His presentation will go into more depth about the Huguenots and he will also engage the audience about any of their ancestors who may have been Huguenots. The program is free and open to the public.
