I realized quickly, with the lack of records for my family, that I’d really have to “think outside the box”. I LOVE to interview people, and ask about "the older days" in Mecklenburg. I also study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try help preserve some of those memories people share with me. Feel free to sign my guestbook stating surnames you are looking for, who you're related to etc. Always a work in progress, a work that I truly love!

Free FRGS event Sat Sept 24th: and Lost Record Collections at LVA

I've been happily busy, helping with our free local genealogical society event (FRGS). If you live in central VA, come see us! (Link below) Dr. Murphy is presenting about AAGHS and African American research. I first heard about AAGHS on Dear Mytrle's Ambush Cam at Roots Tech. There's also presentations about DNA, Using FamilySearch and Genealogy 101. There's also two ladies from LVA coming to present about "The Lost Records Collection". Have you heard about that? I've seen two presentations about these records. Amazing and cool stuff!  Here's a link if you'd like to check out Lost Record Collections. http://www.virginiamemory.com/collections/lost
