Oklahoma Historical Society Research Center Genealogy Lunch and Learn
Attorney Duke Ligon has served as legal counsel for Devon Energy Corporation as well as for Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores. Currently the owner and manager of Mekusukey Oil Company, Duke Ligon maintains strong bonds with his Oklahoma City community and is a lifetime member of the Oklahoma Historical Society.
Since the Oklahoma Historical Society was founded in 1893, it has worked to maintain connections to the state’s history and culture through 30 museums and historic sites, as well as various educational programs, publications, and a research archive.
One such initiative, organized by the historical society’s Research Center, is a Genealogy Lunch and Learn program that provides interested participants with tips to help them engage in family research and learn more about their roots.
The Research Center can provide online access to military records that date back to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Voter registration records also can be used to trace a genealogy. The program involves lectures from experts in various areas of family research.
