CENSUS RESEARCH: MAXIMIZING YOUR RESULTS

Presented by Tish Como 

            Most genealogists routinely trace their ancestors back
through the federal census records, but few take the time to thoroughly
study and evaluate what they find - or what they don't find!  RELIC's
Tish Como will provide examples and offer suggestions about how to glean
all of the information this essential genealogical resource has to
offer.

The program will be presented twice at Bull Run Regional Library:  on
Tuesday, February 22, at 7 p.m. and on Thursday, February 24, at 11 a.m.

Please call (703) 792-4540 or send a message to relic2 at pwcgov.org

 to register for this free event.

 WRITING FAMILY STORIES

Presented by Phyllis Legare 

            Family stories are wonderful:  they enthrall and engage
family members of all ages.  Stories give substance to family traits and
bring generations together.  Find out about tools and techniques for
capturing and documenting your family's stories.  You can start out
small to get comfortable writing and then branch out.  Don't wait - get
started right away.  This program, by veteran teacher and certified
genealogist Phyllis Legare will be presented at Bull Run Regional
Library on Sunday, March 20, at 2 p.m.

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