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.

The Family History Hunters meet in person in the Benham Gallery of the Handley Library in downtown Winchester. If you cannot make the in-person meeting we will have an option for you to join us by Zoom. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent the day before the event.
