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
