Family History Day
Join us for a day of family! We will have several sessions to learn about family history and genealogy. There will be something for ages 6 to 60! There will also be displays of photos and memorabilia from Russell County.
10 am Grow Your Family Tree: Basic Genealogy – This program will get you started on family research. We will also give you sample forms to use to record your data.
Noon Online Resources – If you have got the basics down, we will show you several useful online resources.
2 pm Craft Your Family Tree – This is a good family program for ages 6-60! We will have supplies and help you create a scrapbook page and show you creative ways to showcase your family history.
Family stories are an important part of family history and genealogy. We will have a ‘Story Circle’ where folks can sit and share stories of their family or just stories they’ve heard of the old days living in the mountains.
Displays will include Russell County archaeology and photos of old Russell County School Houses.
The Basic Genealogy and Online Resources sessions are repeats of the program Sept 12 at Lebanon and Sept 24 at Honaker.
