Our meeting on August 8 will be about the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
Do you have any ancestors who marched for suffrage in the 1900s? How did you find out about them? Any stories or photos that you might like to share.
An invitation to the meeting will be emailed to members on Friday.
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.
