BREAKING DOWN THOSE GENEALOGICAL AFRICAN AMERICAN BRICK WALLS Presented
by Char McCargo Bah

African-American family history presents special obstacles to
researchers.   Slavery, name changes and destruction of records are all
difficulties you are likely to encounter.  Char McCargo Bah of Stafford,
Virginia, has been researching her own roots for more than 26 years.
She has become a frequent lecturer on African American genealogical
research and has appeared on regional television.  On Tuesday, November
16, she will present her program  "Breaking Down Those Genealogical
African American Brick Walls," at Bull Run Regional Library beginning at
7 p.m.

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

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.
