ANALYZING ESTATE INVENTORIES
FOR GENEALOGICAL INFORMATION

Presented by Charlotte Cain

The contents of a deceased ancestor's household (such items as
furniture, tools, livestock, clothing, and books) may provide detailed
information about his or her daily life and occupations.  In addition,
learning who bought or inherited those goods may help determine family
relationships.   Local researcher Charlotte Cain will demonstrate how a
thorough examination of estate inventories can hold important clues for
one's family history at a program at Bull Run Regional Library on
Thursday, December 9, at 11 a.m.   

To reserve a seat for this free program, contact RELIC at (703) 792-4540
or at relic2 at pwcgov.org.
