GENEALOGY WORKSHOP

Telling Your Family History Story

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 | 5:30 PM- 8:00 PM

Place: Conference Rooms

Cost: $25 ($20 for Semper Virginia Society members)


Get tips and inspiration from two speakers who have moved past basic genealogical research and now compile fuller stories for their family histories. Samuel Hayes's lecture, “The Intersection of a 42-Year Family Search and the Age of DNA,” focuses on how DNA research filled in several gaps within his family tree, as well as the impact of slavery on his ancestors' lives. “Put Some Meat on Them Bones – Telling the Stories,” the lecture from Rosemary Cantrell, shows the importance of storytelling and explains how you can use background information about locations, organizations, neighbors, local and historical events, and other tidbits to tell a fascinating and accurate story of an ancestor’s life, even when few actual facts are available.
