Izard Historians to meet
The Izard County Historical and Genealogical Society will meet for
their winter quarterly session on Sunday, January 8, 2012, at the Izard

Arkansas, at 2 p.m. The public is invited to attend this free meeting.
Refreshments will be served.
Dr. Lisa Perry, Archival Manager of the NorthEast Arkansas
Regional Archives at Powhatan, will present an overview of the services
offered at that location to the group. This regional archives, which
opened in the Spring of 2011, is a branch of the Arkansas History
The keynote speaker will be Steve Saunders, a park interpreter at
the Powhatan State Park. His Power Point Presentation, titled
Territorial Lawrence to Izard County, will describe the 1815 formation
of Lawrence County and its subsequent subdivisions up to the formation
of Izard County. As the "Mother of Counties," Lawrence County was
established prior to the creation of Arkansas Territory. Lawrence
County encompassed most of north Arkansas, and it was later subdivided
into more than thirty modern counties in both Arkansas and Missouri.
Both speakers will be valuable resources for people interested in
the history of the area and people doing genealogy research.
