 On Thursday, November 14, a new series of historical presentations begins in the historic Effingham County Court House on the first floor.  As in the past, the meetings will be held at 7:00 P.M.  to celebrate the story of Effingham County. 
     In the first program in the series,  Charla Fischbach will tell the story of Griffin Tipsword, the first white settler in Effingham county.  Many readers will recognize the name of speaker because she led the recent successful fundraising effort to buy a new headstone for her ancestor.    
     The public is encouraged to attend to learn more about local history.  The series, which will continue the second Thursday of each month through March 14, 2013, is sponsored by the Effingham County Historical and Genealogical Society and the Effingham County Cultural Center and Museum Association, Inc., organizations devoted to the preservation of the fascinating  history of the county.
