OCCHS closed during week of Thanksgiving.

If you show up, you'll need to wait on the steps until we reopen the following week.

Christmas is coming soon,
and you need to think about
buying a few gifts.

 

Holiday season is all about giving, but it's also about stress. To relieve the stress of shopping, here's what you can do:

 

You can probably think of dozens of original things you can give to others, and giving your time is a truly personal way to help someone celebrate the holidays.

 

 

 


 

Once-in-a-lifetime book sale
The following hardback books and gifts are  ON SALE!
From now until December 24th, 2016.

Are you a genealogist, researcher, or a family-tree hobbyist?
If so, your library needs these research books!  And by the way, these items make fantastic Christmas gifts.


Quarterly meeting: If you have a suggestion about future meetings or about possible speakers, topics, or anything else, please let us know. We need your input. Email us at askocchs@yahoo.com, or do it the old-fashioned way with a letter to:

OCCHS
PO Box 463
Fairburn GA 30213

Contact OCCHS by email, or call 678 850-6506

 

 

Become famous:
We're looking for any and all stories about Campbell County, hog killin', turkey hunting, rabbit boxes, grandpa's snoring, and other tales from your past. If you don't tell your stories, they will one day be gone forever.

 

Email your stories to askocchs@yahoo.com, or use the old method my mailing to PO Box 463, Fairburn 30213.

 


Great opportunity to improve your research skills and help others:

If you are interested in becoming an OCCHS Tuesday volunteer (hours 10–3) please contact OCCHS by email. On the plus side:

  • Learn more about genealogy and how to research
  • Meet new people who may have data that you need
  • Help others with their brick-wall family tree problems
  • Share your stories with other genealogy fans
  • Become involved with community history
  • Help OCCHS help others

 

On the minus side:

  • Nothing we can think of.

 


Things to do, things to know:

Make it your goal to find at least one person you can help with their family tree, whether it's showing them how to use a computer program or how to use the facilities at OCCHS. Every person you help is a new friend and potential new member.

Dedicate yourself to contacting an ancestor you've never spoken with to share family data. You never know what you may discover.

Wanted:

We still need a copy of the Campbell County official seal. If you have any documents showing the seal, please let us know.

Who are we?

The Old Campbell County Historical Society (OCCHS) invites you to help us preserve the history of our community. If you live in the area that was once Campbell County, the history is part of the place where you reside. And you are now a part of tomorrow's history. We invite you to help us preserve the facts and artifacts of the past.

Front of old courthouse building with four white columns and two staircases. Trees in front yard.
OCCHS was formed in 1970 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic Campbell County Courthouse and the documents, images, artifacts, and information that are part of our county. The Courthouse in Fairburn is now the home of this society and houses the OCCHS museum which tells the story of Campbell County.

OCCHS has a Research Room in the Campbell County Courthouse which is staffed by volunteers. The museum and research room are open on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment. For more information about using the research facility or viewing the museum, please contact:

Sidney (Sid) Brown: President: 678 850-6506 (mobile phone)
askocchs@yahoo.com


OCCHS is a non-profit organization which depends solely on membership dues, donations and any money received from special events. The operation of the museum and research center depends entirely on volunteers. Your tax deductible contributions are always appreciated!
