DOUBLE SPRINGS - The Winston County Genealogical Society will meet Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Winston County Archives, located on Highway 195 across from the Winston County Courthouse in Double Springs.
The guest speaker will be Howard Poarch, a retired CPA and current commander of Sons of the Union - Civil War, John T.

Poarch is a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, The Society of 1812, Sons of Confederate Union and First Families of Alabama.

Poarch's presentation will include the history of the Union soliders' organizations from the end of the Civil War to the present.
