Annual meeting for the Historical and Genealogical Society of Somerset County, PA
The Historical and Genealogical Society of Somerset County(HGSSC) will feature videos produced as alternative programming during the Covid 19 pandemic at their annual meeting at 6:30 on April 5, 2021. The meeting will be virtual via Zoom.
The featured program will be the newly completed PA History 2 Go video by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission/Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation with grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Somerset Historical Center was the first of 22 sites within the PHMC to complete virtual tour videos.
The Society also received a CARES grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council for video equipment to provide virtual programming during the pandemic. The Society has filmed two programs thus far and is learning how to produce and piece together video which will be available via social media in the near future. The grant also provided the Zoom capabilities for the Society’s virtual meetings and lectures.
