Maps are one way to give the names and dates in our genealogical research more life, context, and excitement. Where did they live? What would they have seen? How did they get around? Cari will examine various ways researchers can use maps to trace their ancestors and their research.

2:45 – 3:45 p.m. Session 4: "The Power of Family Legends: I am Related to Roy Rogers" Cari discusses family legends as she takes you through a brief outline of the life of Roy Rogers (Leonard Slye). Then, through census research, illustrates her family’s legend of being related to Roy Rogers. The lecture also includes a short documentary “Searching for Roy” created by her cousin, Betsy Greer, that further demonstrates the importance of family legends.

Sessions will be recorded and available to registrants for 90 days after the conference. So, if you can't attend on conference day, you can still register and watch the sessions at your convenience.

The speaker for this Conference was provided by funds from the Richard Slatten Endowment for Virginia History of The Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia.
