COVID-19 Information


As you all are aware, our nation, state and local governments are taking action to stop the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. On Friday the Hillsborough County government cancelled all its events and meetings scheduled between March 13, 2020 and April 13, 2020. The closure impacts all formal programming at Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Libraries; including all group or public meetings such as the Florida Genealogical Society – Tampa meeting on 4 April. However, libraries will remain open for normal use and plans are in place to provide online programming alternatives when applicable.

But there is good news! We are NOT CANCELLING our meeting; we are going virtual. FGS – Tampa will host a live webinar session of our monthly meeting. We are still working out the details, including the precise start time and schedule, and will provide more information once it becomes available.

Please be patient as we work to provide the same level of quality you have come to expect of us. We will provide updates via email to our membership, post notices on our website and post to Facebook.
