Jean Cooper will talk about “Making the Connection” – How do we connect the records we find for African Americans before 1865 (i.e., by first name only, etc.) with their records after 1865? She describes the process by which she has traced formerly enslaved families from the Hydraulic Mills area to their now free identities.
Our meeting date for April has changed from April 8 to April 15, 2023. This will be a hybrid meeting. Jean Cooper will be our in person speaker at the Church and we will also broadcast her presentation by Zoom. More information about the presentation in a few days.

Our first meeting of 2023 will be an in-person meeting at the Church on Airport Road. This will be a meet and greet with no scheduled program. This will be an opportunity to meet with fellow genealogists that we may not have seen over the past year – maybe longer. We will have an informal discussion about our plans for CVGA for 2023.
Please plan to attend so we can get re-acquainted or meet in person for the first time and set out our plans for this year.
There will not be a December Central Virginia Genealogical Association meeting. Information will be posted to this website about further meetings, so please check back.

The Periodical Source Index, or PERSI, is the largest subject index to genealogy and local history periodical articles in the world. PERSI indexes articles in periodical titles (including defunct titles) published by thousands of local, state, national and international societies and organizations. It is arranged by surname or location and also by basic subject headings.
