Scout Genealogy Merit Badge: This class follows the Boy Scout Handbook while making the steps clear and more easy to follow. Scouts are able to complete Sections 1, 4, 5, 8, and 9 at the Library. They then will receive a packet ($.50) along with helpful instructions to complete the remaining listed requirements. The teachers can be consulted further if needed, but when the requirements are completed, the counselors will sign off each boy's record of completion.
