Society Saturday – Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society Fall Schedule and more

Area genealogists are anxious for FRGS meetings to begin – I had a request yesterday for details on the when/where/who/what of the next Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society (FRGS) meeting. The meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month, 7:00 p.m. at the Salem Church branch library.

The FRGS 2013 fall schedule is:
11 September – Virginia Roots
Barbara Vines Little, certified genealogist and noted national speaker, will have a presentation on methods for researching Virginia records and repositories.

9 October – DNA
Shannon Bennett, club member and contributing writer to Family Tree Magazine and other genealogical publications, will discuss DNA testing and how results may be useful in researching your family.
13 November – Using Family Search
Ray Maki, club member, will present information on this website, demonstrate how to access it and show examples of using their Family Tree software.

 There is no formal meeting in December.

Genealogists should check out the newly upgraded website for the City of Fredericksburg.  From the department link, to circuit court, there is the link to the Archives which has a wealth of genealogy information.  Digitized marriage records 1976-present are now available through the circuit court.
