Program Description

Event Details

Join us after hours for a look into the archives!  Come join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Archives with a special presentation.  Each Archives After Hours event will feature a topic concerning items in the archives, how to use them, and how they may help you in your research.  

This month's topic is the Journal of Alexander Balmain, first Rector of Christ Church.  The journal provides insights into the genealogical and historical record of the area, including baptism, marriage, and funeral records.  It also gives researchers an understanding of Balmain himself.

Following our discussion of the journal, guests will get a behind-the-scenes tour of the archives space. 

Space is limited for this event and registration is required.  Registration is limited to guests ages 12 and up.  See below to register.  For more information, contact the Archives at (540) 662-9041 Ext. 17.
