The Sunday Banquet will be at the Lighthouse Lodge in the Dinning room at 1:00 PM.

The business meeting was concerned primarily with a discussion of how genealogical information provided by the Society Genealogist and the membership could most effectively be made accessible to all who are trying to trace their Cory ancestry.

The suggestion was made that all who have gathered genealogical data on Cory ancestors should submit this data to the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake. The reason is that the LDS Church has branch libraries in communities large and small scattered throughout the USA. The branch libraries have microfilm readers and computers, and volunteer personnel who can assist beginners in using their facilities to access genealogical data accumulated at their central library in Salt Lake.

It was also suggested that we enter all our data on a web site so that it will be available to all who have access to the Internet. Earl S. Cory, son of Claude and Phyllis, volunteered to undertake this process.

There was a talk by Earl Cory on some of the Cory history that he has found and a short talk by Phyllis Cory on the founding of Pacific Grove followed by a Cory Society business and planning meeting.
