September 14, 2019: Genealogy Video

At the September 14 meeting, we will view a video of genealogical interest and discuss the topic. Check back here for an update on the actual subject.

REMINDER: Starting in October, our meeting time will change. We will meet from 10am-12noon.

The meeting will take place from 1:30 pm-3:30 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The address of the Church is 1275 Timberwood Blvd., Charlottesville, VA. It is located on the corner of Airport Road and Timberwood. Coming from U.S. 29, the entrance is on the right (north) side of Airport Road immediately before you reach the church. Drive to the back of the building where you will see the entrance to the Family History Center.

May 11, 2019: UPDATE #2 – Cemetery Scavenger Hunt

NOTE: No interment at the cemetery tomorrow, so we will be there. Let’s hope for good weather, but we will be there with our umbrellas if it’s raining.

This month we are going on a scavenger hunt. We will be visiting Riverview Cemetery  where we will scour the aisles looking for the answers to a set of clues we will provide for you. We suggest bringing a pencil and a clipboard to make the quest a little easier.

This event will take place at 10:00 AM on Saturday, May 11. We will gather near sections A & D, (near the flagpole) following the map below.

Whoever finds the most answers will receive a prize – a gift certificate from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies for a FREE course of your choice, provided by the Virginia Genealogical Society. Check out the website at www.genealogicalstudies.com to see the many courses offered. The value of the gift certificate is approximately $89.00.
