Introductory Genealogy & Beyond

CRRL Genealogy Program

The first two “Introductory Genealogy & Beyond” classes, co-sponsored by the Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society and the Central Rappahannock Regional Library, have been spectacularly successful.  So successful, in fact, that the original venue will not do anymore, and all future classes will be held in the Free Lance-Star's Community Room, located at 616 Amelia Street.

The next class will be on Saturday, April 13, beginning at 9 AM. Professional genealogist Phyllis Legare, CG, will be speaking first on “Timelines in Genealogy,” and then on “Military Research.” Ms. Legare has been researching for her family for many years and for clients as well. Phyllis’ main joy in genealogy is finding the family stories. She loves to share her knowledge about genealogy research and also loves to learn—a never-ending process for researchers.

The April 27 class will feature a discussion on "Probate/Courthouse Records," with Sharon Hodges, of the Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society, and "Civil War Research," with Holly Schemmer of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library.  Another class will follow on May 11.

The classes are all free, but please call Kris Jankovits to register: 540-226-9290
