Fredericksburg (VA) Regional Genealogical Society members are excited about the genealogy programs that will be offered this year. At its January meeting a full slate of officers was elected, including the hubby of yours truly taking on the Program Chair position. By the end of the meeting he had four program ideas, and those are being put into place as I post this. This year we will have programs on Cemetery Research, DNA, Blogs and Social Media, Researching at the DAR, and more. An interest survey will be sent around to members soon to ascertain what research areas are most needed.
More exciting news – The Society will partner with the Central Rappahannock Regional Library in sponsoring a five part Saturday morning Genealogical Series. The series of lectures will be aimed at beginning genealogists and will have a range of topics. Stay tuned as details are firmed up.
Top on the to-do list is to get the Society’s web page back online, refreshed, and with new content added. Hopefully this will be done by February.
The Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society meets the second Wednesday of each month (except July, August and December), 7:00 p.m. in a meeting room of the Salem Church Branch Library, 2607 Salem Church Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22407 (540-785-9267)
Meetings are open to the public, and of course we welcome new members!
