Program Description

Event Details

Would you like to begin researching your family's history? Or are you a genealogy veteran? Whatever your level of experience, please join the Family History Hunters to share your successes, discuss research strategies, and figure out the best steps to explore your family's past. The event is sponsored by the Stewart Bell Jr. Archives and hosted by genealogy specialist, Joan Wood.

This month's meeting will focus on "Breaking Down Genealogical Brick Walls." This is always a great subject because so many family genealogists reach a point where their research is stalled. If you are dealing with a "Brick Wall" please feel free to email Joan at archives@handleyregional.org with a question to discuss at the meeting.

The Family History Hunters meet in person in the Benham Gallery of the Handley Library in downtown Winchester. Registration is required. To register, please use the online form below or call the Archives at (540) 662-9041, ext. 17.
